 Nobina, Sweden’s and the Nordic region’s largest bus operator, has added a further 20 eBuses to its growing intake from BYD. Deliveries of the 18m articulated K11 vehicles will commence at the end of 2019.

Four are destined for the Barkarby district of Stockholm while the remaining 16 will go to the city of Linköping.

The latest order follows Nobina buying 26 BYD vehicles last autumn, comprising 11 12m eBuses, 10 18m artics and five 8.7m midibuses, which are all scheduled for delivery this summer.

A total of 138 vehicles will see Nobina as BYD’s largest bus fleet customer in the Nordic region.

“This is a significant addition to an already substantial investment in our eBus products from Nobina,” said Isbrand Ho, Managing Director, BYD Europe.

“The electric bus market in Sweden and, indeed, throughout the Nordic countries, is growing rapidly and BYD remains well placed to supply the right products for a wide range of operations.”

“Nobina is strengthening its position as the leading operator of electric bus solutions and sustainable public transport services in the Nordics,” said Martin Atterhall, Fleet Manager, Nobina Group.

“The technical e-mobility concept by BYD has proven to fit perfectly well into the high demands among customers and PTAs in the Nordics regarding flexibility, total transport economy, quality and reliability.”
