BYD showcased its range of zero emission buses at this year’s ITT Hub event. The company offers product ranges for bus, coach, passenger car, taxi, construction, municipal and logistics sectors in addition to off-highway ranges.
“It’s great to have the opportunity to engage again personally with customers and colleagues from around the EV industry,” says BYD Europe managing director Isbrand Ho, “ITT Hub presents a fantastic prospect to showcase our pure-electric bus and forklift products, and to discuss the importance of decarbonisation in the UK, and also in BYD’s other markets in Europe.
“BYD is the only manufacturer in Europe to bring to market electric-only solutions. We are a provider of a truly sustainable, ‘total solutions for eMobility’ – for operators, for local communities, and for the wider transport infrastructure.”
BYD exhibits included the BYD ADL Enviro400EV double-deck, product of a successful collaboration with Alexander Dennis, alongside new electric forklifts.
