SINGAPORE — Less than three weeks after launching its service, electric vehicle car-sharing operator BlueSG has drawn more than 3,300 members and 5,000 rentals.

With its fleet of 80, it works out to more than 220 rentals a day, since the subsidiary of French transportation firm Bollore Group launched on Dec 12 last year. Then, it said that more than 2,000 members had registered for its service, meaning subscription has grown by around 50 per cent.

In a press release on Wednesday (Jan 3), BlueSG’s managing director Franck Vitte said they were “very encouraged and heartened by the overwhelming response”. He added that the firm is looking at adding to the 32 charging stations islandwide quickly to serve its members.

BlueSG targets to roll out 1,000 electric vehicles and 2,000 charging points by 2020.

Users can choose to pay S$15 a month for lower rental rates of S$0.33 per minute or go with paying a flat S$0.50 per minute of use.
