BYD C9 Electric Coach Bus

This past January. BYD unveiled in New Orleans its new all-electric coach bus C9.

With a 365 kWh battery and claimed 190 miles of range, it was a pleasant surprise.

As it turns out, these buses are already in production as we found a fleet in China at the Dalian International Conference Center during Summer Davos 2015.

BYD delivered some 20 C9 VIP shuttles with capacity for 53 passengers.

The Chinese company still claims 300 km (186 miles) or more range and over 100 km/h (62 mph) top speed. Charging takes 1-2 hours, so they must have access to 200+ kW chargers as well.
