Swedish bus operator Nobina has ordered 20 additional electric buses from BYD, bringing its total electric fleet to 138 vehicles.
Nobina says the 18m articulated electric buses are powered by cobalt-free iron-phosphate batteries which offer high levels of performance and operational safety.
Two separate deliveries of this latest BYD e-bus order will be made, with four vehicles destined for the Barkarby district of Stockholm, and 16 for the city of Linköping.
Deliveries of the buses are expected to commence at the end of 2019.
The order follows Nobina’s deal for 26 BYD vehicles last autumn, comprising 11-off 12m e-buses, ten 18m articulated e-buses and five 8.7m midi-buses which are scheduled for delivery this summer.
