DC fast charging stations will enable recharging of the batteries in around 90 minutes.

The first BYD's dump trucks were already delivered in July.

The next application for electrification is to be a concrete mixer truck, that like dump trucks, causes emission equivalent to a total of 70 passenger cars.
