With 1.002 news buses for Bogotá, BYD wins the largest pure-electric order outside of China

BYD announced that it has exclusively won cumulative orders to supply 1,002-unit pure-electric buses to Bogotá, in a tender open to all bus technologies. This is the largest order for pure-electric buses outside of China to date, which sets a new record in sales volume for the overseas pure-electric bus industry. Like the 470 bus models delivered by BYD to Bogotá in December 2020, this batch of 1002 buses also includes 9-meter and 12-meter models. BYD will partner with local bus manufacturers Superpolo and BUSSCAR respectively on the bus body parts. At present, BYD has accumulated 1,550 orders for pure electric buses in Colombia, operating in Medellin, Cali and other cities, in addition to Bogotá.
