Go-Ahead London - operator of a fleet of electric buses - has taken a delivery of a BYD e6 passenger car to support its fleet.
The e6 is pure electric and has been proven to be useful in terms of mileage, having been used in demanding taxi operations in other countries around the world. Uber for example operates 30 of these vehicles.
Frank Thorpe, BYD’s UK country manager, said: “We are conscious that bus operators new to electrification are keen to learn the ins and out of EV operation.
“Now by offering our practical and reliable e6 car via attractive leasing packages, we are keen to provide opportunities to do so beyond our core ebus range.”
