Norway’s national bus and rail provider, Vy Buss, has ordered 55 pure electric buses from BYD.
This major order – comprising models from across the BYD product range – will be delivered next year.
The vehicles will go into service on routes in the Norwegian municipalities of Oslo, Hamar and Haugesund.
Ole Engebret Haugen, CEO at Vy Buss, said, “Our ambition for Vy Buss is to be a leader when it comes to modern and fossil fuel free technology, so that our customers can enjoy green and smart journeys.”
Isbrand Ho, Managing Director of BYD Europe, said, “This is an important occasion in the history of BYD in Europe, Vy Buss has placed its faith in electric mobility, and has taken a large step towards building a sustainable future for local communities.”
