7 May 2018 – ComfortDelGro Taxi has placed an order for 200 new hybrid Hyundai Ioniqs – its first in close to 1.5 years.
The first batch is due to arrive next month, and will immediately be leased out to the growing line of would-be hirers.
ComfortDelGro Taxi CEO, Mr Ang Wei Neng, said: “We have seen things settle down lately with more drivers switching from private hire cars as they find driving taxis relatively more stable. At the same time, we also see more new drivers who have recently obtained the Taxi Driver’s Vocational Licence joining us. We had stopped replacing old taxis for a while but demand has grown in the last few months so we have decided to order new taxis.”
The Group last placed an order for 1,050 taxis in December 2016.
