BYD is further expanding its footprint in Europe by confirming an order for 27 of its 40-foot all-electric buses for use in Copenhagen. It is the company’s first order for electric buses from Denmark and the second new country to be entered in 2018, after confirming its first order for Portugal earlier this year.

The order was placed by Anchersen, a Danish bus company, which operates on 19 of Movia’s routes in Copenhagen. It is the first electric bus order for Anchersen.

The vehicles, which do not rely on opportunity charging, will be charged overnight at the Anchersen bus terminal in Avedore Holme and are then able to operate the whole day on a single charge.

The BYD buses are planned to start operation at the end of 2019 and will be running from the north to the south of Copenhagen city, between Emdrup Torv and Lergravsparken.

“With the deployment of our electric buses, the first step has been taken in replacing the diesel buses in Copenhagen," said Isbrand Ho, Managing Director at BYD Europe.
