Ten electric taxies made by BYD Co are now running on the streets of Shenzhen, China.

BYD e6 follows the design of the crossover. It is a 5-seater purely electric car with an acceleration of 0 to 100 kph in 10 seconds. Its top speed is 140kph, and the battery pack ET-Power located under the rear passenger seats is based on BYD's own lithium-ion iron phosphate technology.

Battery-recharge can be done overnight with 220V, but the BYD e6 has also a battery-recharging system that can recharge the battery to 80 percent in about 15 minutes.

The car will be launched in the European and American markets firstly.
