Press Release - Monday, 4 December 2017

Singapore, 4 December 2017 – BlueSG Pte Ltd (a subsidiary of the Bolloré Group), today announced that its BlueSG programme, Singapore’s First Large-Scale Electric Vehicle (EV) car-sharing programme, will be officially launched on 12 December 2017.

2          There are two subscription plans for the BlueSG programme – a premium yearly membership plan priced at $15 per month; and a weekly membership plan which does not require any recurring fee. (More details on the subscription rates can be found in Annex A)

3          Interested parties can sign up and register on www.bluesg.com.sg. The first 1,000 to confirm their subscription by 11 December 2017, will enjoy special incentives offered by BlueSG.

4          “In preparation for the public launch, we are in the midst of finalising the BlueSG mobile app, which can be downloaded on the App Store and Google Play from 5 December. Users can book their Bluecar via the mobile app and rentals will be charged based on duration instead of distance. We are excited about the impending official launch in Singapore, as it is the world’s second biggest electric vehicle car-sharing programme after Paris. We are eagerly looking forward to the residents of Singapore embracing and enjoying the benefits and convenience of the BlueSG service,” said Franck Vitte, Managing Director, BlueSG.

5          As part of the BlueSG programme, a total of 30 BlueSG stations offering 120 charging points, will be rolled out island wide by end of this year. Of the 30 BlueSG stations, 18 are located in public housing estates including Tampines, Bishan and Punggol, while 10 stations are situated in the city-centre and its fringes, and 2 others within the industrial and commercial estates at one-north and the Science Park.

6          BlueSG’s vision is to accomplish a 1,000-strong electric vehicle fleet and 2,000 charging points by 2020.
