BYD unveiled the world’s first 45 ft. battery-electric commuter coach bus, setting the bar high for innovation in the transit industry, at this year’s APTA Expo. Additionally, BYD will host the largest ever electric vehicle display at APTA Expo, a testament to the company’s position as the world’s largest electric bus manufacturer with more than 27,000 electric buses in service around the globe.

BYD will showcase four models of its advanced technology battery-electric buses in addition to a class 5 battery-electric truck and forklift in booth #6947 this week at the 2017 APTA Expo.

BYD offers seven battery-electric coach and bus models, more than any other manufacturer in the North American market today. BYD also manufactures battery-electric trucks and forklifts, some of which will also be on display at APTA Expo 2017.

“BYD offers a battery electric bus or coach to meet any operational or service route need a transit agency has in North America,” said BYD Heavy Industries sr. VP Macy Neshati. “Our buses reduce operating costs for customers due to BYD’s advanced battery-electric technology and that translates into large savings over the 12-year life of a bus. We also offer the industry’s only 12-year battery warranty so customers can have complete peace of mind when purchasing a BYD bus.”

In response to high demand across North America for its advanced technology buses, BYD recently completed an expansion of its Coach and Bus manufacturing facility in Lancaster, Calif. This expansion will allow the company to build up to 1,500 battery-electric buses annually once operating at full capacity. BYD has nearly 800 employees in California that contribute to building its battery packs and buses and assembling its trucks. BYD’s mission is to provide innovative solutions with its battery-electric buses, trucks, forklifts and many other products to meet real-world demands.
