Leading electric bus manufacturer BYD has embarked on its first ever delivery of eBuses on 12 December to the Public Transport Operator, Bergkvarabuss in Skåne, Sweden. It is the first time that pure-electric buses will be used for regional and long distance transportation in Sweden, making this debut delivery even more significant. The initial delivery of 45 BYD eBuses marks the first phase of a substantial order for 79 units placed by Bergkvarabuss earlier this year. The order spans the spectrum of BYD pure-electric zero-emission buses, all featuring the very latest cutting edge technology from the world-renowned new energy vehicle experts. Once in service, the BYD eBuses will be operated to connect six designated cities in the Swedish region of Skåne, including Ängelholm, Malmö, Trelleborg, Ystad, Simrishamn and Sjöbo. While the buses are new to Bergkvarabuss, BYD eBuses already enjoy popularity in the wider Nordic region, and in other parts of Sweden, where they are respected for their reliability, safety and performance, even in extreme cold temperatures. It further strengthens BYD’s position as a leading supplier of electric buses to the Nordic region, many of which are built in Europe at BYD’s production facility in Komárom, Hungary. The first delivery to Bergkvarabuss includes four of BYD’s best-selling 12-metre eBuses, as well as brand new models to BYD’s electric bus range; 18 in the 13-metre category with a further 23 units of BYD 15-metre models. All the pure-electric buses benefit from the latest generation BYD Iron-Phosphate Battery Technology. This improved battery density delivers impressively long driving ranges as proven under SORT Test conditions. BYD’s innovative battery thermal management system also provides enhanced battery life and optimises safety. Technical innovation from BYD extends further to the 6-in-1 controller, which integrates the vehicle’s primary electronic components. The latest BYD 15-metre eBuses offers a single charge range of 400km under SORT test conditions. Both the BYD 13-metre and 15-metre are designed to impress on every level. From their sleek and stylish body contours, to the contemporary interior equipped with comfortable seating, ambient lighting and conveniently placed USB-charging points, they have been designed with the passenger experience in mind.
