World’s leading eBus manufacturer BYD has completed a delivery of ten eBuses to public transport operator Tüke Busz Zrt in the southern Hungarian city of Pécs marking the start of the first ever electric bus operation in the city. The vehicles were manufactured at BYD’s state-of-the-art production facility in Komárom, also in Hungary. The eBus fleet handover begins a longer-term commitment from Tüke Busz Zrt to convert its entire fleet to battery electric power. Despite the initial COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, BYD was still able to meet the planned delivery date for Tüke Busz Zrt. The delivery is also the latest in a number of recent fleet deliveries from BYD elsewhere in Europe as COVID-19 restrictions are relaxed and demand for public mobility increases.

With its capacity as a producer of face-masks and hygiene products, to help ease the shortage of PPE equipment and protect bus drivers, BYD is also making a contribution of 2000 face-masks to the Pécs local authority and a further 2000 to Tüke Busz Zrt.

Tüke Busz Zrt’s new eBus fleet consists of BYD’s best-selling 12-metre low-floor model, and will replace the city’s ageing diesel-powered buses. The 12-metre model delivers a range of 300km on a single charge and, across the new BYD fleet, will cover 900,000km per year, 10% of the Tüke Busz Zrt’s annual distance. Charging infrastructure for the company’s new fleet has also been designed and installed by BYD.

With its manufacturing facilities in Hungary and also in France, BYD has established itself as Europe’s leading electric bus and coach brand, with over 1,300 pure-electric, 100% emissions-free vehicles either delivered or on order with Public Transport Operators throughout the continent.
