Electric Vehicle Fleet Expands in Singapore 

Electric bus leader BYD is helping Singapore migrate to cleaner transportation with the delivery of new 100% electric vehicles recently. 

To commemorate Singapore celebrating 52 years of independence, BYD set their sights on the future by unveiling a new bus that can comfortably transport travelers up to 250 kilometers on a single charge.

“We are honored to mark Singapore’s National Day by contributing to its move to become a sustainable smart city,” said Liu Xueliang, BYD’s General Manager for Asia-Pacific Auto Sales Division.

The new pure electric coach, which will be used to transport school children, is the latest addition of BYD’s pure electric vehicles to hit the streets of Singapore–a nation focused on easing urban congestion and mitigating the effects of climate change.

In February of 2017, BYD celebrated another milestone by launching Southeast Asia’s biggest fleet of pure electric taxis, which are estimated to reduce the country’s carbon emissions output by 46,400 tons,   roughly equivalent to saving 26,000 trees.

Currently, BYD operates in more than 20 markets of the Asia Pacific including Malaysia, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
