BYD has completed the supply of ten eBuses to Tüke Busz Zrt, the public transport company of Pécs, South Hungary. The low-floor pure electric buses will replace the diesel-powered vehicles and the eBus handover begins a longer-term commitment from the Hungarian operator to convert its entire fleet to battery electric power.

«The 12-metre model delivers a range of 300 km on a single charge and, across the new BYD fleet, will cover 900,000km per year– 10% of the Tüke Busz Zrt’s annual distance», states the manufacturer.

The vehicles were manufactured at BYD’s production facility in Komárom, also in Hungary. Charging infrastructure has also been designed and installed by BYD. 

Despite the initial COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, BYD was still able to meet the planned delivery date for Tüke Busz Zrt. As a producer of face-masks and hygiene products, BYD is also making a contribution of 2,000 face-masks to the Pécs local authority and a further 2,000 to Tüke Busz Zrt to help ease the shortage of PPE equipment and protect bus drivers.

With its manufacturing facilities in Hungary and also in France, the Chinese manufacturer has reached over 1,300 BYD pure-electric vehicles either delivered or on order throughout Europe.
