BYD launches pure electric trucks in Spain

News

BYD has rolled out three zero emission commercial vehicle product lines targeted at fleet customers in Europe.

Info

Two BYD pure electric on-highway trucks and one BYD pure electric van made their debut appearance in Europe last week at a premiere presentation in the Estadio Nueva Condomina stadium in the city of Murcia, south-east Spain.

BYD's etruck range and vans have been proven in China and certain other global markets but has not previously been offered to customers in Europe.

The event in Murcia was hosted by both BYD and dealership Tomi Maquinaria, a key electric forklift truck dealer for BYD in the Spanish regions of Murcia and Almeria. Guests included representatives from local and regional Spanish government, logistic companies and dealerships.

The first trucks available to European customers are the T6 (7.5T GVW) light truck and the Q1M Yard Tractor (46T GCWR), the latter specifically designed for airport, port and distribution centres. Also launched is the fully electric BYD T3 commercial vehicle, which is the first van BYD is bringing to Europe.

Patricio Valverde, Counselor of Development and Infrastructure of the Murcia region, said: “We thank Grupo Tomi for their efforts regarding sustainability and innovation as a tool to reduce the environmental impact, but also to reduce costs and mostly the importance of logistics to achieve those objectives.”

Isbrand Ho, Managing Director, of BYD Europe, said: “This is a highly significant step for BYD - the introduction of a whole range of proven and competitive zero emission vehicles spanning key sectors of the commercial vehicle sector. Our previous pure electric products have cemented their position in their respective categories - taxis, city buses and forklifts. We are confident that this fourth product range - etrucks - will also win sales success even though the European CV sector is intensely competitive.”

Javier Contijoch, Vice President of Sales at BYD Europe, said: “BYD established its European electric truck division in 2018 and has since tested two of its prototype electric trucks across Europe. Spain was chosen as the first pilot market. The premiere of the BYD electric trucks is the start of the roll-out in Europe. Other European regions are soon to follow.”
