Two BYD 12m eBuses are on order to operate in Olesa de Montserrat with TGO DX. The vehicles will replace older diesel models and provide a service on route M3 to neighbouring Esparreguera, just outside Barcelona, and connect with the regional train station.
The order from TGO DX expands BYD’s customer base in Catalonia. With delivery scheduled for Q3 2022, the delivery will also see the deployment of BYD’s latest generation 12m model, which had its debut at the 2019 Busworld show. Along with Deutsche Bahn’s DB Regio Bus division earlier this year, TGO DX is one of the first operators to order BYD’s latest model.
The new bus has enhanced 422 kWh battery capacity to provide increased energy density and extended range capability, and a new CO2 air-conditioning system further reduces emissions.
For fleet managers, the FleetLink fleet management tool monitors performance parameters across the eBus fleet, supporting optimum utilisation and maximum uptime.
“With the electrification of the M3 line, we continue to work towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals included in the United Nations 2030 Agenda,” says Carme Pros, CEO, TGO DX.
