China car maker BYD is set to provide 46 of its e6 electric vehicles (EVs) to Bogotá, Colombia’s taxi fleet, making it the first South American all-EV fleet. according to Green Autoblog.

Meanwhile, three other e6 EVs will go to the Bogotá Technology, Science and Innovation administration, as all 49 cars will hit the road by March of 2013.

This is the second announcement by BYD regarding the lucrative Latin American market. Earlier this summer, the car manufacturer also announced it was supplying more than 500 electric buses to Uruguay.

BYD is also hitting the European market, thanks to reaching a deal this past October with Greentomatocars in providing 50 e6 cars to a London Taxi Fleet that will hit the road by the middle of 2013.
