BYD wins 70-vehicle electric bus order from Nobina Finland

Nobina, the largest public transport operator in the Nordic region, has ordered a further 70 BYD eBuses. This latest order from Nobina Finland includes 42 units of the 13m eBus and 28 of the 15m model. They are scheduled for delivery next summer and will primarily operate on city routes in Helsinki. 

The 13m eBus delivers a single charge range of 400km, while its larger 15-metre counterpart promises more than 450km range under SORT test conditions.

This is Nobina Finland’s second major order for BYD buses, having taken delivery of 119 units in the summer of 2021, which also represented Finland’s largest electric bus order. 

Petri Auno, CEO, Nobina Finland, says: “Nobina is totally committed to sustainable transportation and this latest order for additional BYD eBuses is a testament to our strategy to replenish our fleet with clean, zero-emissions solutions that are kind to the environment. 

“BYD eBuses now account for 25 per cent of our Nobina Finland fleet and we look forward to enhancing this in the future.”
