BYD Deploys Cutting-Edge Electric Buses in Zalaegerszeg, Hungary.

Eleven 12-metre BYD eBuses deployed in Hungary, driving towards a greener and more sustainable future.

Zalaegerszeg, Hungary - BYD, a leading electric vehicle manufacturer, has announced the deployment of eleven state-of-the-art 12-meter eBuses in Zalaegerszeg. The introduction of these electric buses not only marks a transformative shift in the city’s public transportation system but also underscores Zalaegerszeg’s unwavering commitment to advancing sustainability and improving local mobility.

The collaborative project, valued at HUF 2.1 billion (USD 6.1 million), has been completed in partnership with Volánbusz, one of Hungary’s largest public transport operators, and the HUMDA Green Bus Program, facilitated by the Hungarian Motorsport Development Agency. By joining forces, BYD, Volánbusz, and HUMDA have paved the way for a greener and more efficient future for public transportation in Zalaegerszeg.

With a population of over 55,000 residents set to benefit from these electric buses, Zalaegerszeg will witness a significant reduction in emissions, embracing cutting-edge technology to create a cleaner and more sustainable environment. The introduction of the electric buses comes as a replacement for eleven conventional vehicles, representing a substantial step towards reducing the carbon footprint of the city’s public transportation system.

The BYD eBuses boast an array of modern features designed to enhance passenger comfort and safety. Equipped with air conditioning, wheelchair accessibility, electronic passenger information systems, and onboard cameras, these buses offer a superior travel experience. Moreover, their advanced charging system requires only 2-2.5 hours per day to achieve a full recharge, ensuring efficient and reliable service for commuters.

One of the key strengths of these electric buses lies in their impressive range. Under varying road and weather conditions, a single charge enables them to cover up to 300 kilometers, providing reliable transportation options for Zalaegerszeg’s residents. Thanks to the charging infrastructure implemented by Mobility Volánbusz Kft, these environmentally friendly vehicles will operate on almost all bus lines within the city, catering to the diverse needs of the community.

Mr. Javier Contijoch, eBus Sales President at BYD Europe, said: “This is a significant event not only for Zalaegerszeg, HUMDA, and Volánbusz but also for BYD, as the city will be added to the list of communities that can gain knowledge about and use electromobility and our company’s market-leading electric bus in everyday traffic. BYD is a pioneer in electric public transport and has the longest experience operating e-buses. I am confident that our buses will continue to deliver high quality and sustainable solutions much to the satisfaction of the citizens of Zalaegerszeg.”
