Through its electric passenger vehicles, electric forklifts, electric lorries, and electric buses powered by BYD’s battery, powertrain, and chassis technologies, the business has helped eliminate 274 million kg of CO2 emissions in India alone.
According to the statement, the overall mileage of BYD’s electric buses in India has exceeded 126,883,681 km, with the single greatest driving mileage exceeding 469,668 km.
