The 2017 International Greentech and Eco Products Exhibition and Conference Malaysia (IGEM) is being held right now at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, and Chinese EV manufacturer BYD is showcasing its e6 hatchback at the show. The company is currently targeting fleet buyers with this car, although it has no plans as yet to offer it commercially.

It’s a fairly large car, measuring 4,554 mm long, 1,822 mm wide and 1,630 mm tall, with a wheelbase of 2,830 mm. It’s also really quite heavy, tipping the scales at 2,420 kg. Power comes from a synchronous AC electric motor that develops 90 kW (121 hp) and 450 Nm of torque, and it is juiced by BYD’s proprietary iron-phosphate battery with a capacity of 80 kWh.

All-in-all, the e6 has a top speed of 140 km/h and a range of 400 km, and BYD says that it can be charged to full capacity in under two hours with a 30 kW AC charger. The company has also released a chart showing the savings one can expect from using the e6, based on its experience running a fleet of taxis in Singapore.

Based on the claimed energy consumption of 26 kWh per 100 km and the current local energy price of 63 sen per kWh, BYD claims the e6 will save as much as RM39,216 in four and a half years compared to the average petrol-powered taxi. The data is based on the usage of the e6 taxi on the island nation from December 2014 to January 2017.

Exhibitors at the show say that a commercial launch in not viable at this point as the price would be north of RM200,000. The company is also facing an uphill battle in terms of attracting fleet buyers as there aren’t enough incentives provided by the government.

The name BYD isn’t new to Malaysia, of course – it supplied fully-electric buses for the Sunway Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line.
