The cost of the new cars was estimated to be about S$80 million, or S$160,000 for each car, at prevailing COE (certificate of entitlement) prices.
Photos of a new Opel Corsa-e with BlueSG livery was shared on Facebook by the company on Sep. 24.
BlueSG will have more than 1,000 cars on road
A BlueSG spokesperson told ST that "200 or so" new Opel cars are on the way.
If it goes according to plan, BlueSG, an exclusively electric car-sharing firm here, will have a fleet of about 1,000 cars in total before 2022 is over.
There are some 800 two-door compact BlueCars on the roads in Singapore.
BlueCars are made in Italy.
The Opel Corsa-e is Spanish-made.
It has four doors.
Acquired about a year ago
In October 2021, home-grown engineering group Goldbell completed its acquisition of BlueSG from French transportation giant Bollore Group.
The new Opel Corsa-e cars are being introduced almost a year after the acquisition.
BlueSG is a loss-making business, ST reported.
But Goldbell had said it would invest S$70 million up to 2026 to turn things around.
Rental rates for the new cars, with more advanced features, are expected to be higher.
