BYD, the Chinese new energy vehicle and power batteries giant, received new order for its electric buses from Norway’s public transport operator Nobina, totaling 64 BYD eBuses, with scheduled delivery in Q2 2023, announced BYD in its website on November 21.
Edison Yin, BYD’s Nordics regional manager, said, “We are delighted to have developed such a solid relationship with Nobina in Norway, substantiated by this latest eBus order. We expect to introduce even more non-polluting BYD eBuses to Norway providing clean, zero-emission local public transportation.”
Jens Råsten, fleet manager at Nobina, said, “We continue to grow our eBus business in the Nordic region, as this order for Norway demonstrates. We are happy with BYD who has proven to be a reliable partner.”
This 64-unit’s order is for 40 units of 12-metre low-floor BYD eBuses and 24 units of 15-metre low-entry BYD eBuses. These two model benefit from BYD Iron-Phosphate Battery technology developed for optimised safety, enhanced performance and a longer driving range, said BYD.
Another key advantage inherent to these eBuses, is BYD’s unique 6-in-1 controller integrating the entire ecosystem of the bus for improved reliability and higher levels of operational efficiencies. Further efficiencies are supported by BYD’s Battery Thermal Management System enhancing reliability in extreme climates, making BYD eBuses a practical option for Norway’s varying weather conditions.
Found in 1999, Nobina is the largest public transport operator in the Nordic region with 13,000 employees across four countries. Now it’s serving various markets with a total of 5,000 buses and special vehicles.
Up to now, Nobina has over 300 BYD pure-electric buses in service in its fleets, or on order, operating in towns and cities across Sweden, Norway and Finland.
