Besides e-taxis, Blue Bird will also focus on multi-purpose vehicles this year, a design that has proven increasingly appealing to customers.
From 2018 to 2019, Blue Bird operated around 29,000 vehicles, including taxis, rental cars and buses.
On April 22, Blue Bird launched its first e-taxi at Blue Bird Group’s head office in South Jakarta to mark Earth Day.
Less than Rp 40 billion (US$2.87 million) invested by the company for the first 30 electric vehicles and supporting infrastructure.
“We plan to add 200 e-taxis and are still reviewing the plan to add more Silver Bird taxis. Our vehicle purchases will depend on how many units we will replace,” Blue Bird investor relations head Michael Tene said.
