BYD selects Milea to distribute electric trucks in New York City

Chinese EV maker BYD has selected Milea Truck as the distributor of its electric trucks in New York City. Milea will offer the full line of BYD’s electric trucks, including:

  • Class 6 and Class 8 Trucks
  • Refuse Collection Trucks
  • Tandem Axle Day Cabs
  • Yard Tractors
  • Refrigerated Box Trucks

BYD Director of Business Development John Gerra said, “By partnering with Milea, we can put our zero-emission trucks to work immediately and help provide clean air for New Yorkers.”

Milea Truck Sales President Barry Milea said, “We continue to partner with New York City Departments, not-for-profits, and local businesses to help drive the transition to clean-energy trucks. We are very mindful of the fact that the Bronx and the surrounding boroughs have some of the highest asthma rates in the country. We feel we have a social responsibility to do everything in our power to help fight this by putting more low-emission vehicles on the road, and BYD will be a valuable partner to help us achieve that mission.”

    This strategy is good. Cooperating with local distributor can help Chinese manufacturer increase the sales. BYD have learned to find a partner. Hope they can also adopt outside supplier which can add competition in their sub supplier.
