BYD ADL clocks 100 electric double deck bus sales in UK

News

Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) and BYD Europe jointly announced that the companies’ electric vehicle partnership, which delivers the leading UK electric bus, has already topped 100 double deck bus sales.

Info

ADL is a subsidiary of NFI Group Inc. (NFI), one of the world's largest independent global bus manufacturers and BYD is a global leader in new energy vehicles, with more than 50,000 pure electric buses and coaches delivered, together with associated battery and other technology.

The news comes as BYD ADL receives another significant fleet order for its 100% emissions-free electric double deck Enviro400EV with National Express confirming 19 vehicles for its West Midlands bus operation in Birmingham.

These impressive figures for BYD ADL's double deck include significant fleet deals with some of the UK's major bus operators including Metroline, Stagecoach, National Express and RATP Dev London. The BYD ADL partnership has seen the move to electric mobility within the passenger transport sector gathering pace over the past 12 months as more and more operators realise the operational benefits of combining ADL's stylish and comfortable bus design with 100% emissions-free, pure-electric operation. Importantly, BYD designs and installs charging infrastructure systems, to provide its customers with a complete one-stop-shop solution to fleet electrification.

“This is a notable achievement by the BYD ADL team in the UK, underlining the strength and depth of the partnership,” said Arthur Whiteside, Managing Director, UK Sales at ADL, “We have achieved significant market penetration in just three years, while the uptake for the Enviro400EV has been extremely encouraging since we started production in February. The move to electrification is well underway and we're pleased to be leading the charge. Operators appreciate the significant benefits the Enviro400EV offers - which combines 100% emission-free operations with the comfort, style and safety that make the Enviro400 the UK's favourite double deck bus.”

“We see the demand for full electric mobility only increasing,” added Frank Thorpe, Managing Director at BYD (UK), “and for two good reasons - public demand and fleet productivity. An increasingly well-educated public is calling for a sustainable future and zero-emissions public transport can play a key role in helping people switch to an energy-saving mindset. Pure electric operation is having a truly dramatic impact on air quality in our towns and cities, and that's good news for everyone.”

“For operators,” he went on, “electric mobility offers long-term productivity gains for scheduled-service bus fleets, regardless of their size, as proven by public transport operators right across Europe. We look forward to engaging further with UK operators in our mission to bring 100% emissions-free mobility to our streets.”
