BYD has secured the largest ever single order for electric buses in Europe in a deal with Keolis Nederland BV, the Dutch subsidiary of global public transport provider Keolis. The landmark order comprises 259 pure-electric, 100% emissions-free BYD eBuses scheduled for programmed delivery from next summer. For Keolis Nederland, BYD’s 8.7 metre midi bus, 12 metre and new 13-metre eBus models will enter service from the end of 2020 on routes throughout the Netherlands’ IJssel-Vecht region, including front-line operations in the municipalities of Zwolle, Apeldoorn and Lelystad. BYD’s 13-metre modelis equipped with new upgraded battery technology to provide extended range and ‘city-to-city’ capability. The majority of the Keolis order comprises 206 of BYD’s best-selling 12-metre model all of which will be equipped with pantographs.

The deal was reached following close cooperation between Keolis and BYD to devise a demanding whole-life package which delivers a total transport solution and takes into account operational needs and passenger comfort requirements.
