Singapore’s first electric car-sharing scheme BlueSG received more than 3,300 registered member sign-ups and 5,000 rentals within its first three weeks of operation here.

BlueSG launched on Dec 12 with 80 vehicles and 32 charging stations and aims to roll out a 1,000-strong electric vehicle fleet and 2,000 charging points by 2020.

In a statement on Wednesday, BlueSG managing director Mr Franck Vitte said he was “very encouraged and heartened by the overwhelming response.”

He added: “We are looking at quickly deploying more stations islandwide as requested by a number of Singapore residents.”

The company is a subsidiary of French transport firm, the Bollore Group.
