Electric car-sharing initiative to be rolled out in 12 December

BlueSG car sharing service has announced that it will officially launched an estimate of 30 stations and 80 Bluecars on 12 December.

BlueSG, a subsidiary of French transportation company, the Bolloré Group, said on Monday (4 December) that there will be two subscription plans, a premium yearly membership plan priced at $15 per month; and a weekly membership plan which does not require any recurring fee.

Members of the public who are interested can sign up and register on The first 1,000 to confirm their subscription by 11 December “will enjoy special incentives”.

It stated that it is “in the midst of finalising the BlueSG mobile app, which can be downloaded on the App Store and Google Play from 5 December”, adding that users can book their Bluecar via the mobile app and rentals will be charged based on duration instead of distance.

BlueSG noted that a total of 30 BlueSG stations offering 120 charging points will be rolled out islandwide by end of this year. Of the 30, 18 are located in public housing estates, 10 are situated in the city centre, while two others are within the industrial and commercial estates at one-north and the Science Park.

Blue SG stated that under the EV car-sharing programme signed with LTA and the Economic Development Board (EDB) in June 2016, BlueSG will roll out a total of 500 charging stations equipped with 2,000 charging points nation-wide. Of these, 400 charging points will be opened for public use. In addition, the first batch of Bluecars is being commissioned in Singapore and will form part of a 1,000-strong EV fleet in the future.
