Europe’s leading battery-electric bus manufacturer BYD has received an order for an additional 13 eBuses from Nobina, the principal bus operator in Sweden and the Nordic region. The new 12-metre models are destined for the town of Piteå in northeast Sweden, close to the Arctic Circle. This is most northerly location in Europe for a BYD fleet to go into service. The far northern region of Sweden provides the ideal opportunity for BYD to demonstrate the capability of pure electric technology in extremely cold environments. BYD eBuses have already seen successful operation in regions throughout Scandinavia.

Similarly, in southern Europe where climates are often hot, BYD eBus fleets are performing with exceptional efficiency, making BYD the brand of choice for transit operators in an increasing number of towns and cities. Following delivery in summer 2021, Nobina’s BYD fleet in Sweden will total 125 vehicles, with a presence in nine major Swedish towns and cities. Nobina is the largest BYD bus fleet customer throughout the Nordic region, with over 160 BYD eBuses now on order or in operation, including 44 vehicles in service in Norway and Denmark. Over 1,300 BYD eBuses are now in operation or on order with Public Transport Operators right across Europe.

BYD’s 12-metre eBus is the company’s best-selling model in Europe and the natural choice for PTOs wishing to promote zero-emissions electric mobility – delivering a full day’s operation on a single charge.

The eBuses will be manufactured at BYD’s production facility in Komárom, Hungary, Nobina’s latest order has been specified with optional luggage racks.
