  2. Toyota Covers Prius With Solar Panels That Also Charge Battery On The Move Automakers are looking to maximize the driving range of their plug-in hybrid and all-electric vehicles, and solar panels are the hottest solution right now — literally. Toyota is well aware of that and has announced a plan to begin public road trials from late July 2019 with Prius PHV vehicles equipped with high-efficiency solar batteries. The trials will take place in Japan and benefit from the support of Sharp Corporation and the country’s New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO). As part of the program, Sharp will supply onboard solar battery panels using high-efficiency cells. According to the automaker, the goal is “to assess the effectiveness of improvements in cruising range and fuel efficiency of electrified vehicles equipped with high-efficiency solar batteries.” Toyota installed the Sharp-supplied solar panels on the roof, hood, rear hatch door, and other parts of the Prius PHV to produce a demo car for public road trials. Compared to the Prius PHV that’s already available with a solar charging roof system, the demo car is superior in every respect. At 860 W, the rated power generation output is 4.8 times bigger and the solar battery cell conversion efficiency exceeds 34 percent (versus 22.5 percent). Most importantly, the demo car uses a system that charges the driving battery both while the car is parked and when on the move. This development is expected to lead to “considerable improvements in electric-powered cruising range and fuel efficiency.” More specifically, Toyota claims the experimental vehicle’s daily maximum charge to the battery while the vehicle is parked is equivalent to a driving range of 44.5 km (27.6 miles), compared to the production car’s 6.1 km (3.8 miles). Things get better when the car is moving, as the daily maximum charge and power supply to the driving and auxiliary battery amounts to a driving range of 56.3 km (35 miles). The production Prius PHV’s solar charging system only supplies power on the move to the auxiliary battery, which powers the navigation and other systems. Toyota will conduct the trials under various driving conditions in Toyota City, Tokyo, and other areas in its homeland. The goal is to use resulting data for the development of an onboard solar recharging system. I know some are going to say it look like sh*t (tai gor in dialect), but given that it can provide energy for >50Km per day, I don't mind actually, not only to save my wallet, but our mother earth.
  3. Hi everyone. I started this thread to get a second opinion from more expert car owners on the costs of owning a car. In my case, I would like to own a car and finance it with Grab driving, and also earn some side income. Currently doing self-sustaining investments, so don’t mind driving to burn all my spare time and also to ferry my family around. It is my hope that this thread can also guide new aspiring PHV drivers. Key Assumptions Buying Honda Jazz 1.3 from AD, no loan ($74,999 at Kah) Driving 6 hours for Grab a day, 8 hours on the road, $5/hour fuel Gross takings for 1 hour of Grab is average $32 (Before commission+expenses) Medisave is still your own money so don’t need to count contributions as expenses Daily Cost of driving PHV (Worst Case Scenario) Car Cost ($74999/10 years, $7499.9 PARF) = $18.49 Insurance Price ($2000/year) = $5.48 Maintenance Fees ($1000/year) = $2.74 Road Tax ($578/year) = $1.58 Additional Costs (Accidents, Wear and Tear) ($4000/year) = $10.96 Carpark Fees ($110 HDB season, $6/day Misc) = $9.62 Fuel Costs (8 hours/day @ $5/hr) = $40 Total Daily Costs: $88.78 Estimated Daily Earnings Gross Takings (6 hours, $32/hr) = $192 After 20% commission = $153.6 Taxable income = $56064 Income tax paid = $400 Nett Daily Income (After all deductibles) = $63.72 Worst Case Scenario Monthly Income (6 hr/day for 30 days) = $1911.72 Key Questions to be answered Is the $32/hr average gross takings by PHV drivers realistic? Assuming the most newbie technique - to aim for incentives. Would renting a car be a better option?
  4. New rules set to be laid down next month stipulate that private-hire vehicle drivers must be Singapore citizens who are at least 30 years old. This comes amidst discussions between the National Taxi Association and National Private Hire Vehicles Associations. One of the key concerns prompting the proposed rule is the problem of youths taking to driving private-hire vehicles full-time. As of February 2019, there are 41,000 registered PHV drivers, of which 40 percent of them are under 40 years old. Over 6500 of them are below 30 years old. However, the data does not include non-registered PHV drivers who operate “hitch” services. Hitch drivers are allowed to only make 2 ride-sharing trips a day, however many are known to take on more rides across different ride-sharing operators. The NTA and NPHV are also in discussion about issues such as contracts between transport operators and drivers, drivers’ insurance and the issue of whether PHV can do roadside pick-ups. The result of these talks will be announced next month. Article from redwiretimes. No official news. Looks dubious. But been trending around some dealer websites also. If really true how many will be affected?
  5. I advocate Taxi/PHV should be regulated to have equipped with a minimum in-car safety standard. To me, it is their very basic social responsibility to make sure the car is as safe as possible. As public transport, shouldn't they have responsibility to the safety for their passengers? Everytime a taxi/PHV involved in an accident, the driver is the only one responsible. Shouldn't the Taxi/PHV rental companies have responsibility? Full spec SRS is the most basic one. Why they are not equipped with full SRS specs? Are they really not affordable with Singapore standard of living? Most passengers sit at the back seat. Curtain airbags could have saved life and avoid serious injuries, including the Commonwealth Avenue West accident at 19 Apr 2018, should the taxi was equipped with curtain airbag. (To the victim family, Sorry to bring up this painful lost. My thought is with the young lady. My intention is to do something to prevent similar incident in future.)

    LTA come for phv liao

    https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/transport/lta-to-streamline-rules-governing-taxis-private-hire-cars SINGAPORE - A long-awaited move to impose tighter regulations on private-hire operators is finally on the way. The Land Transport Authority said on Thursday (Jan 24) that it is proposing to license all street-hail and ride-hail operators, "as they provide the same fundamental service of transporting commuters from point to point". This is a stark change from the time when these newcomers arrived six years ago, when the authority viewed them as "tech companies" and not transport providers. The LTA said on Thursday that regulations will also cover companies which provide pre-booked chauffeured services. Observers expect changes to harmonise regulations governing taxis and private-hire players. The LTA noted that the change will be "different from today's regulatory framework, where one set of regulations apply to taxi operators which provide both street-hail and ride-hail services, and there are no uniform regulations that apply to operators that purely provide ride-hail services". It said a new regulatory framework "will replace the existing Taxi Service Operator Licence and Third Party Booking Registration Certificate". The LTA is also looking at ways to improve safety, but gave no details on how it intends to do this. Preliminary statistics from motor insurers indicate road accident rates have crept up since the arrival of private-hire firms. On the commercial side, the new regulatory framework will allow drivers freedom to drive for whomever they wish. The framework will "allow LTA to prohibit all operators from having driver exclusivity arrangements", the authority added. The Straits Times understands the Public Transport Council will eventually see that both taxi and private-hire companies adhere to the new regulations. When asked, the PTC said it was more appropriate for the LTA to reply. An LTA spokesman would not comment, merely saying "more details on the review will be made available when ready". The LTA is seeking public feedback on the proposed changes. Those who wish to have their say can do so via http://bit.ly/PCDP2P, or e-mail jiaksai@lta.gov.sg by Feb 21.
  7. If I drive part-time Grab during weekday evening, and I also rent it to another Grab relief driver during the weekend, do I state the NCD as 50% (mine) or 0% (Grab relief driver) when getting the car insurance? Assume that I have already converted my car to commercial with LTA.
  8. When PHV is mentioned, what thoughts/feelings come to you immediately?
  9. From yesterday's BT. Wow....3,000 to 4,000 surplus PHV cars to be released into the used car mkt.

    TADA: New ride-hailing app

    zero commission then how they make money?
  11. Hi everyone, some questions that I can hopefully get answered here instead of heading down to the authorised dealer showroom and disturb the executives. I am looking at either a mitsubishi attrage or a honda jazz. 1. For driving PHV, will the in-house Authorised Dealer warranty and servicing apply? 2. Will I get a better deal bidding for my own COE instead? For example, C&C cays the COE charged amount is $20,000. Meaning if I buy a car without COE, they assume COE is worth $20,000. But I will lugi if I bid for my own COE. 3. How will the AD charge me for the COE? Guaranteed COE? Do I need to pay a markup to guarantee my COE? 4. If I pay cash upfront, how much price markup should I expect? Or is getting a loan better overall? 5. Can anyone recommend me a SE for C&C or KAH that will treat me nicely? I am a greenhorn and don't want to get destroyed by their sales tactics. 6. Can anyone recommend me a good car insurance for PHV, with good excess and reasonable premiums. 7. Is the in house insurance usually any good for the bonus for $5000? Will I end up paying more in the long run? Thank you!
  12. Ok thread got too big Continue here Thread from part iv: http://www.mycarforum.com/topic/2705127-singapore-reckless-drivers-thread-part-iv/
  13. Hi guys, Please notify the owner of SFN6028L that his/her car was hit by a PHV driven by a PRC lady. It happen around 1630hr along Tanjong Katong road. Although the PHV driver did stop and alight to look for the owner, I did not stay behind to see if she left any note behind for the owner.
