BYD and Castrosua to develop Spanish built electric buses

BYD has signed a framework agreement with Spanish bodybuilder Castrosua to produce customised 12m eBuses for the local market. The BYD-Castrosua 12m eBuses will be built on BYD electric chassis and incorporate Castrosua’s NELEC body for Spanish customers.

The first BYD-Castrosua eBus is already under development and will soon be available for operation.

Javier Contijoch, BYD Europe eBus vice president of sales, says: “It is a great honour for BYD to bring the world’s leading technology to Spain and start the partnership with Castrosua. We highly value our local partnerships and it is especially significant that the tailor-made eBuses will be manufactured locally in Spain, for Spanish customers.” 

Beatriz Castro, CEO, Castrosua, adds: “Castrosua and BYD now combine their strengths with the clear objective of offering customers highly personalised and innovative electric bus solutions. Together we continue to support eMobility, meeting customers’ specific needs, through a service that will benefit from the experience and professionalism of both our teams.”
