BYD recently announced the sales of new energy vehicles skyrocketed 291.11% year on year (YoY) to 28,668 units, which substantially offset the YoY plunge of 56.43% in January sales of oil-fueled vehicles (with 15,252 units delivered).

The Chinese automobile manufacturer's overall car sales volume in January grew 3.74% from a year earlier to 43,920 units, while tumbled 36.9% compared with a month ago.

In earlier times, the manufacturer has launched one of the world’s largest pure electric double-decker bus fleet in northwest China’s Xi’an.

The fleet of 200 K8S double-deckers has been put into operation on six lines in the city around the Chinese Spring Festival, providing citizens of this ancient city with more environmentally friendly travel.

The buses offer a broad field of vision, using low floors with single-step access as well as front and rear swinging doors. The lower deck is more than 1.9m high, providing ample space for standing, while the upper deck is over 1.7m in height, making walking comfortable and convenient.

In addition, they come fitted with a wheelchair area and boarding/debarkation ramps, offering maximum accessibility to passengers with all kinds of needs.

The buses feature BYD’s independently developed batteries, motor, electronic control and wheel drive technology. They also boast significantly improved driving safety and operations throughout their entire life cycle, thanks to a steering delay function, smart key system and other leading technologies.

In China, K8S double-decker buses have been put into operation in the cities of Shenzhen, Guilin, Huai’an, Jingdezhen and Pingtan. 

Overseas, BYD pure electric double-decker buses have been operating in London since October 2015, and BYD and local operator Alexander Dennis in July 2018 won the bid to supply thirty-seven BYD ADL Enviro400EV buses, which will enter service with Transport for London (TfL) operator Metroline in the second quarter of 2019.
