BYD begins landmark eBus fleet delivery in Germany

Two of Germany’s leading Public Transport Operators (PTOs), have taken delivery of the first vehicle in a joint fleet order for 22 eBuses from BYD – the world’s leading eBus manufacturer. The handover brings about a landmark moment for BYD as it begins fleet deliveries to a public transport provider in Germany for the first time.

Despite the recent COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, deliveries remain on schedule for completion in October 2020.

The new pure-electric, emissions-free 12-metre BYD eBus fleet will go into service in the Germany state of North Rhine-Westphalia. BYD’s 12-metre single-deck eBus delivers a total carrying capacity of 80 passengers and boasts a single charge range of over 200km.
