BYD to introduce eBus-12 electric buses in Frankfurt

BYD Company Limited has signed a Letter of Intent (LO”) with the city of Frankfurt, Germany to introduce BYD’s all-electric eBUS-12 (earlier post).

BYD will supply three eBUS-12 units, two DC charging stations and technical support in the first quarter of 2012. These electric buses will be used as shuttles at Frankfurt’s Airport and Public transportation routes to the Gateway Gardens in Frankfurt.

Equipped with its lithium iron phosphate battery pack, the eBUS can travel up to 250 km (155 miles) in range per charge. The BYD eBUS has been used in Shenzhen and Changsha, China fleets for several months. 200 more units of the Ebus-12 will be delivered to the Universiade Shenzhen 2011 by August 2011.



In Germany?.. I'm surprised the protective German government allowed it. They probably want to study and cope the tech.


This bus can show their battery's abilities in a short time.


Good move by BYD. It should be expanded to cover 100+ other cities and show more people what can be done. A range of 250 Km should be enough for most small/mid size city delivery vehicles and many taxis.


BYD had a weak public offering in China, the bloom may be off the rose for them right now.
