BYD delivers electric buses to London

Posted on December 19, 2013

Two pure electric BYD electric buses were delivered to Transport for London during a ceremony on Wednesday. The buses will operate on two central London routes, making it the first in the UK capital to be serviced by full-electric, emissions free buses.

While the BYD ebus delivers zero emissions public transport it also offers bus operators tremendous operating cost savings. The energy consumption is around 130kWh/100km in urban conditions.

The ebus battery takes four to five hours to recharge from totally exhausted at a cost of approximately $31, representing a savings of up to 75% of fuel cost compared to a diesel bus.

The BYD Fe battery is designed for a life of more than 4,000 cycles, meaning the battery life can exceed 10 years under normal operating conditions.
