BYD Delivers First E-Buses Close to Arctic Circle

BYD begins most-northern European eBus deliveries to Nobina in Sweden


Nobina, the principal Public Transport Operator (PTO) for Sweden and the Nordic region, has taken delivery of the first of 13 BYD eBuses for operation in Pitea in the north-east of Sweden, marking the start of services in northern Scandinavia’s challenging, often sub-zero degree climate.

The new fleet will see BYD eBuses in operation close to the arctic circle at latitude 65.31 degrees north – BYD's most northerly customer delivery in Europe. The BYD fleet will be the first electric buses for Pitea, providing safe, quiet and emissions-free public transport for the city's residents.
