BYD is the front-runner to supply 50 electric buses in Argentina

Electric Bus BYD

Argentina’s Ministry of Environment plans to support the purchase of 50 electric buses as a pilot project in several cities throughout the country, and has recommended Chinese EV-builder BYD as the vendor.

A bid evaluation committee chose BYD from a pool of five bidders on the strength of its 12-meter electric bus, which is already in service in cities such as London, Los Angeles and Amsterdam.

BYD signed its first contract in Argentina in 2011 through its local subsidiary. Last May, senior-level management met with the country’s President and Minister of Environment. The company expects to close the e-bus deal within the next few weeks.

To better satisfy the coming demand, BYD plans to build a new manufacturing plant in Argentina.
