BYD has fulfilled another delivery of its zero-emission pure-electric buses to Denmark. A total of 21 new generation 13-metre BYD low-entry eBuses were recently handed over to the Danish bus operator, Anchersen A/S in Copenhagen.

It is the second sizeable delivery of BYD eBuses to Anchersen A/S. BYD has already supplied 28 12-metre pure-electric buses to Denmark and the relationship has continued to evolve.

More than 600 BYD eBuses are now in service or on order in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland collectively covering 40 million kilometres, reducing CO2 emissions by over 44,000 tonnes, BYD sums up.

The 13-metre BYD low-entry eBuses in this most recent delivery have now entered commission for Movia, the public transport authority for the Greater Copenhagen area. They are operating on multiple Movia routes in Copenhagen. Anchersen A/S provides regular daily services for more than 15 Movia routes in Copenhagen.

These clean electric buses all benefit from new generation BYD Iron-Phosphate Battery technology, providing a longer driving range, optimised battery life and ultra-safe performance.

Each of the smart new BYD eBus has capacity for 70 passengers. BYD incorporates its innovative ‘6 in 1’ controller, which integrates the entire ecosystem of the bus to improve reliability and provide greater operational efficiencies, leading to lower cost of ownership.
