BYD expands its presence in Italy with six ebuses for Padua

Padua, a city in the Veneto region in North East Italy, will soon have its first electric buses running on its streets. BYD has won a tender for the delivery of six BYD 12 metre ebuses

to bus operator Busitalia Veneto in Padua. Busitalia Veneto is owned by Busitalia Sita Nord (entirely owned by Gruppo Ferrovie dello Stato Italiane, the most important Italian public transport operator) and APS Holding of the Padua Municipality. The tender won by BYD is the first electric bus tender for Busitalia Sita Nord.

The six 12 metre ebuses equipped with two doors and featuring BYD’s new frontal appearance are expected to be delivered in quarter three of this year.

BYD 12 metre ebuses are already running on numerous streets in Italy. A total of 25 BYD ebuses have been in operation in Milan since 2014 and in Turin and Novara since 2017.

Isbrand Ho, Managing Director at BYD Europe: “More and more Italian cities are choosing to go green and electric and are opting for BYD. We are anticipating a significant rise in sales of our ebuses in this southern European country after the great news on recent tenders we won in the northern countries of Sweden and Norway. Italy has become a key market to us and we are looking forward to even more orders in the near future.”
