It’s apparently also the largest order for BYD outside of China.

Interesting, nice to see BEV garbage trucks… BYD, class 8 semi looks like a brute too… 105K GCVW, thats almost a heavy hauler….

This is a big 3 axle / 10 wheel truck which is going to keep the air clean and reduce the diesel consumption. Good job BYD and great decision by Brazil.

BYD is also going to start supplying batteries to Changan Automobile in a new JV with them…
BYD always seems to have something going on…

> 60% hydropower
solar power on the rise
close to 1 GWpeak installed in 2017
> 1GWpeak to be installed in 2018
+ several wind energy projects

BYD quality. Quite low.
However, unlike in china, these vehicles will help clear the air. They are less than 20% fossil fueled for electricity.

It seems like a lot of companies have been making the move to electric vehicles. Why has there been not much information regarding this one? Sounds like they are a promising new company though.
