Kaohsiung is Taiwan's leading city to implement E-car sharing

Kaohsiung, the most innovative city in Taiwan, is one of the cities in the world that are leading the way in urban innovation.

Kaohsiung has become the most developed city in Taiwan.

Rent and Drive Your Own Electronic Vehicle: Kaohsiung City has Commissioned a Company to Implement E-Car Sharing in the City

In response to global warming and other environmental issues such as air pollution, and to minimize the number of private vehicles, the Transportation Bureau of Kaohsiung City will be the first to launch K-ecar sharing in Taiwan, taking another step toward the vision of a smart, low-carbon city. Diànchíh Company has been commissioned to implement K-ecar sharing, and a contract has been signed. Diànchíh will jointly run the K-ecar sharing service with some major car manufacturers in Taiwan. Rental stations are currently planned for major state administrative centers, tourist sites, MRT stations, shopping areas, etc.

According to the Transportation Bureau, in conjunction with the Ecomobility Festival, Diànchíh will provide on-site demonstration of the K-ecar sharing service in the Hamasen area this October, and the service may be launched within a year at the earliest. The Bureau plans to set up 50 stations in the future and provide at least 84 vehicles designated for one-way car rental.

By launching the K-ecar sharing service, the Bureau aims to lower the number of privately-owned vehicles, joining the global trend of sharing economy while improving the issues of traffic congestion, parking, and air pollution in Kaohsiung. Once the service is launched, people can use cars without having to first purchase and own a vehicle of their own. As soon as they sign up for membership, which will be verified by an electronic system, they can start using the service. Fare is calculated based on time, and the mode of rental is one-way by default, in order to minimize parking issues. This way, residents will be able to save the money they spend on cars, including the vehicle itself and related taxes, and the goal of improving the city’s transportation and environment will also have been met.

E-car sharing has been well-established and developed in Europe and America for several years now. No city in Taiwan has been able to implement E-car sharing thus far, and Kaohsiung will be the first. To familiarize residents with the service, including the rental method and the performance of the cars, the Transportation Bureau plans to set up a demonstration-and-trial station at the Ecomobility Festival this October. Residents will then be able to gain a first-hand understanding of the new public transportation service.

Director-General of the Transportation Bureau Chen Ching-Fu said that in the past few years, the City Government has worked hard to introduce various green public transportation systems, such as KMRT, the Light Rail, double-decker buses, and shared taxi service, in order to improve the quality of transportation and residential life in the city. The addition of the K-ecar sharing service will improve and complete Kaohsiung’s public transportation network and provide transportation service to people’s homes. Now that a company has been commissioned, which was a major milestone, we hope to provide more diverse options of green transportation for the public and eventually become a city of ecomobility.

BMW、納智捷百萬車款 將成高雄共享電動汽車

高雄市率先引進全國首例「電動汽車共享系統(K-Ecar sharing)」,今天下午與廠商電馳公司完成簽約,預計提供BMW I3及納智捷S3等百萬名車供租借,費率每半小時150元,最快10月推示範站供體驗,2年內50站上路。

高雄市電動汽車共享系統今舉行簽約儀式,市長陳菊與電馳公司共同簽署,將結合納智捷、汎德、華城電機、亞太電信等國內大廠,攜手打造高雄款電動汽車共享系統(K-Ecar sharing),在行政中心、觀光景點、商圈、捷運等地建置租賃站。

市府交通局表示,配合「2017生態交通全球盛典」舉辦,10月將於哈瑪星完成1處示範站、5至10車,讓民眾提早免費體驗;並於1年內設置部分站點正式營運;2年內完成全部50處站點,並提供至少84輛純電動車甲租乙還的租車服務。

電馳公司執行長周世璿表示,高雄電動汽車共享系統初步規劃採用BMW I3及納智捷S3等新款車型提供民眾租借,只要加入會員,透過電子化認證方式就可租借,費率每半小時150元,依實際使用時間長短計費,未來還會有不同優惠方案。

陳菊表示,電動汽車共享系統類似汽車版「公共自行車租賃系統」,可輔助並完善大眾運輸路網,並可增加高市就業機會,及預估3年內帶來3億元以上投資。
