BYD’s partner in Nepal, Cimex Inc has signed an agreement for 50 units of BYD e6 with Self Drive Nepal, a subsidiary of Spark Group for emission-free rental fleet operation. The company said that this is a single largest order for electric vehicle fleet operation in South Asia. It is also noted that the fleet operations have commenced.
The company will also set up a service center at Spark Group's facility in Guheshwori, Katmandu. The workshop facility is scheduled to be operational by May 2022 with trained professionals and modern equipment to strengthen BYD’s position in Nepal. As part of the workshop, Fast Chargers have already been installed at the facility. The All-New e6 is equipped with Ultra-safe Blade Battery, tested rigorously for thermal runaway of batteries. The all new e6 is easy and convenient to charge, as it supports both AC and DC fast charging and comes with a large boot space of 580 Litres.
Roshan Pokharel, CEO of Self Drive, said, “BYD’s e6 will meet all our requirements to offer passengers comfort, good range, and rapid charging experience.”
