BYD and US Hybrid to develop hydrogen electric bus for Honolulu airport

BYD has teamed with powertrain specialist US Hybrid Corporation to develop a hydrogen-electric bus, which will serve Honolulu’s Daniel K. Inouye International Airport. The bus will use BYD’s battery-electric platform, integrating hydrogen fuel cell technology to eliminate dependency on charging.

The new bus is being developed under Hawaii’s Clean Energy Initiative (HCEI), part of the state’s goal to be powered 100% by renewable energy by 2045. Robert’s Hawaii will serve as the bus operator, shuttling passengers between the airport’s terminal and car rental facility.

“With the state aggressively pursuing clean power, we have an ideal backdrop to showcase the most efficient zero-emission technology in the industry. The fusion of US Hybrid’s fuel cell technology and BYD’s electric bus platform will shape the future of Hawaii and ultimately, change the world,” said US Hybrid founder Abas Goodarzi.
