Spain ordering 30 E-buses signifies the growing trend and dedication towards the Madrid 360 initiative, taking into account that the order is the largest in Spain’s history. With 2.25% of bus fleets comprising of Electric buses, Spain plans on eliminating diesel powered fleets by 2023. Sweden’s Bergkvarabuss has placed its very first order of 70 Electric buses from BYD, and drives the order directly after securing public transportation contracts in Söderslätt, Österlen and Nordväst. BYD will be retained by Bergkvarabuss if it continues winning transport contracts in other regions, driving the demand up.
