BYD, electric bus manufacturer, has received an order for a further 13 eBuses from Nobina – the principal bus operator in Sweden and the Nordic region.
The far northern region of Sweden provides the ideal opportunity for BYD to demonstrate the capability of pure electric technology in extremely cold environments, having already seen successful operation in regions throughout Scandinavia. Similarly, in southern Europe where climates are often hot.
Following delivery in summer 2021, Nobina’s BYD fleet in Sweden alone will total 125 vehicles, with a presence in nine major Swedish towns and cities.
After more than five years and over 7 million kilmometers driven with BYD eBuses, in nordic conditions. We feel confident about the BYD platform meeting our high demands of a reliable, sustainable and attractive public transport – offering a cleaner, quiter and more comfortable traffic,” said Jens Råsten, Fleet manager, Nobina Group.
Our ongoing partnership with Nobina is testament to the safety and performance of our eBus products,” said Isbrand Ho, Managing Director, BYD Europe.
