Thriev adds BYD e6 to all-electric chauffeur fleet

Based in Edgware Road, Thriev has its own rapid chargers on site, and will soon have BYD’s own charging equipment installed, claimed to fully recharge the e6 in two hours.

The e6 is BYD’s first European model, powered by a 101bhp electric motor and offering a range of 186 miles to a single charge. Existing customers include private hire firm GreenTomatoCars, also based in London.

Isbrand Ho, BYD Europe’s Managing Director, said: ‘We have been looking at various options to bring our e6 and its proven emissions-free technology to London. We are convinced that in Thriev we have found the right partner to do this – we share many of the same objectives of providing safe, reliable and efficient green transport in cities.’

Arvind Vij, CEO and a co-founder of Thriev added: ‘We think that BYD’s e6 model meets our requirements to offer passenger comfort, good range and rapid charging. We share BYD’s desire to provide practical, zero-emission solutions and look forward to a long-term partnership.’
