Chilean Capital Of Santiago Ordered 183 More BYD EV Buses

According to BYD, the ordered model can go up to 250 km (155 miles) on a single charge. The number of seats is 38.

“The 183 units of BYD pure electric buses will join the 100 electric buses that BYD and local partner Enel brought into Santiago last December, giving BYD a dominant share of more than 60% in the capital’s promising electric bus market. They will be integrated during the last quarter into the existing Metbus fleet to operate the popular Avenida Grecia route, becoming the first route operated by only electric buses in Latin America.

Metbus is also one of the largest pure electric bus fleet operators in the Americas.”
