BYD shows the largest fleet of electric buses in the world

Although China tends to beat all records of environmental pollution, the local Government is putting a lot of efforts in achieving greater electrification of its fleet. It is estimated that 500,000 buses roll by China, and the fifth part are already electric.

BYD estimates that, at the current rate of replacement, in the mid of the next decade all the buses will operate with electricity, at least in the field of urban and peri-urban. The BYD ebus a range of 250 kilometres. With an average commercial speed of 21 km/h (in the case of Madrid), well you can with a service of 12 hours in a row

Are ready to load to 60 kW (380-volt three-phase current), enough for five hours

Your batteries have a capacity of 324 kWh, practically the same as that of 11 Nissan Leaf’s 30 kWh. Consumption, of course, is a “bit” higher, 129,6) kWh/100 km. To recharge your batteries, if we were using a point of fast charging standard (40 kWh) for passenger cars, would take eight hours for a load almost complete. According to BYD, hold up to 4,000 charge cycles. To a daily load, the shelf life is about 11 years.


The ebus are designed for urban use. Have a corridor of low-pass, air suspension, accessible entrances, etc, it Can reach up to 70 km/h and its two electric motors deliver a maximum of 245 HP and 700 Nm of maximum torque. Vacuum weighs 13,3 tons and has 25 seats plus one wheelchair.
