BYD has won an order of 25 electric buses, in a tender issued by Transports Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB). This order is a part of a larger tender.
According to the contract BYD has to deliver 25 units of new-generation 12-metre electric buses to Barcelona from 2022.
TMB intends to procure another 210 electrified buses by 2025 in March, tenders for which will be floated in the future.
The tender had a total value of 116 million euros and was divided into five lots. Of which in two of the lots, TMB focused entirely on all-electric buses: which included 29 electric articulated buses and 49 electric solo buses, equipped with pantographs. The 49 solo buses are divided between 24 Solaris Urbino 12 electric, which TMB ordered in September, and the 25 electric buses from BYD.
