Chile orders 100 electric buses from China’s Yutong Bus

Yutong Bus will deliver 100 electric buses to Chile, part of the Chilean government’s environmentally-friendly urban development policy, which includes a push to replace all current city buses with new energy vehicles by 2050.

The new e- buses will be operated by Buses Vule and STP Santiago to serve Santiago’s public transportation system.

The Yutong E12 Electrical Bus is equipped with a 324 kWh battery pack and a 150 kW DC charger. Charging time is estimated at two hours.

Yutong has delivered 20,635 buses to Latin America, making up 54% of all Chinese exports in the sector. Last year, Yutong sold 67,568 large and medium-size buses, including 24,865 new energy buses, in the region.

“For 13 years we’ve been strengthening our presence in Chile, deploying the Yutong Model of customized products, accessories, financing and comprehensive protection to serve different customers in different markets,” said Yutong Deputy General Manager Chang Hao.
