500 New Energy Buses will be delivered to Thailand, but these aren't from BYD.
The significant order was recieved by lucky Chinese company BONLUCK, with an end-of-this-year deadline.
New Energy Buses is an extensive category, so we don't exactly know whether they will be all-electric or some kind of plug-in hybrids.
As BONLUCK has some NEV models listed on the website we believe that Thailand really could switch to electric.
