(JW Insights) Feb 13 -- Chinese EV giant BYD has received a substantial order from Swedish public transport operator Transdev AB for 52 eBuses, said the company on February 10.
The order comprises two BYD eBus variants with upgraded Iron-Phosphate Battery Technology for enhanced safety, range, and reliability: 44 units of 15-meter low-entry eBuses and eight units of 12-meter low-floor eBuses. This is the largest order that Transdev has placed for BYD eBuses since 2015, when it first introduced the BYD brand to its fleet.
The zero-emission buses on order will operate on Transdev routes in the province of Gästrikland on the east coast of Sweden.
There are more than 3,000 BYD eBuses in service or on order in Europe. BYD eBuses have traveled over 197 million km in 95 cities in 17 European countries, reducing CO2 by more than 211,000 tons.
Edison Yin, BYD Regional Manager Nordics, commented: “BYD is proud to support Transdev as they expand their green fleet of zero-emission electric buses in Sweden. BYD eBuses are playing a pivotal role in empowering the electrification of public transport across the Nordics, and we expect our latest pioneering technology to accelerate this transition as we continue to innovate and inspire eMobility on a global scale.”
