BYD ADL upgrades the all electric Enviro200EV bus range

News

BYD Europe and Alexander Dennis Limited (ADL) jointly announced that the companies’ electric vehicle partnership will upgrade its market-leading BYD ADL Enviro200EV with ADL’s new electric bus heating system and optimised vehicle layouts.

Info

BYD is a global leader in batteries and electric buses, while ADL is a subsidiary of leading independent global bus manufacturer NFI Group Inc. (NFI).

The BYD ADL partnership has led the market for electric buses in the United Kingdom since it was formed in 2015. Using ADL's expertise in bus design to optimise vehicle layouts and maximise the use of available space, the partnership will upgrade the BYD ADL Enviro200EV single decker to the new vehicle lengths of 10.9m (replacing the current 10.8m model) and 11.6m (offering two extra seats over the current 12m model, which it replaces).

The buses will utilise ADL's new all-electric heating system for electric buses. This heat pump solution has been developed to transfer atmospheric heat in to the vehicle. Designed to run efficiently in low ambient temperatures, it can also be used in reverse to cool the vehicle during warmer weather. The high efficiency of the system enables additional operational range.

The upgrade brings the buses in line with the shorter, 10.2m and 9.6m versions of the BYD ADL Enviro200EV as well as the double deck BYD ADL Enviro400EV, all of which have been introduced to the market in 2019.

Orders for the upgraded models have been taken from operators in the United Kingdom and New Zealand, taking the total number of BYD ADL electric buses delivered or on order to 412.

Isbrand Ho, Managing Director of BYD Europe, said: “Here we see yet another example of the close collaboration between BYD and ADL; bringing together its industry-leading resources to develop an exacting specification that benefits UK bus operators and their passengers. I'm pleased to see more and more public transport operators in the UK adopting BYD ADL as an electric mobility solution.”

Colin Robertson, ADL Chief Executive, commented: “Our partnership continues to go from strength to strength as bus operators choose reliability and best-in-class support. With this upgrade to the BYD ADL Enviro200EV single decker, we are building even more strongly on ADL's unrivalled experience in designing buses that maximise efficiency, capacity and passenger comfort.”
