BYD Electric Bus Approved For Sale In Canada
BYD announced that its electric bus is now approved for sale and operations in Canada after earning the Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) Certification and being placed on the “Vehicle Manufacturers Registry” with Transport Canada.
This is important for the Chinese company, especially because practice shows that some formal requirements can be crucial.
For us, the real question is, of course, if operators will be willing to buy electric buses, which potentially can easily replace their diesel equivalent?
BYD undertook a huge effort to demonstrate electric buses in many countries around the world and it will be interesting to see if there’s strong demand outside of China, where sales of BYD electric buses are way higher than in all other countries combined.
