Europe’s leading eBus manufacturer BYD has secured a fleet order for ten new 12 metre eBuses from public transport operator, Tuke Busz Zrt, in the southern Hungarian city of Pecs. The new fleet the first electric buses in the city will replace ageing diesel-powered vehicles with delivery scheduled for early 2020, and signaling the start of a longer-term whole-fleet conversion to electric mobility.

BYD’s 12 metre, three-door, low floor eBus variant boasts a range of 300km on a single charge and, across the Tuke Busz Zrt new BYD fleet, will cover 900,000km per year 10% of the company’s annual distance. BYD has also designed and installed the prerequisite charging infrastructure for the new fleet.

BYD embarked upon eBus field trials in Pecs five years ago, after which time the manufacturer has enjoyed significant growth. BYD has since established production facilities in both Hungary and France, emerging as market leader in several countries and proving popular with Local Authorities and bus operators across the continent. This most recent order was announced at a special press conference last week in Pecs, where the city’s Mayor, Zsolt Páva, described the state-supported investment as delivering on price, quality and service. He also said, “…we have taken a major new step towards the modernisation and sustainability of public transport in Pecs. I am confident the continuation will be similarly successful which will help us with the electrification of the city’s public transport sytem.”
