BYD ADL Electric Bus Partnership in the UK

BYD delivered the world’s first pure-electric double decker bus for Transport for London (TfL) in 2015 in the city’s iconic red. That same year, BYD UK entered a cooperation agreement with Alexander Dennis Ltd (ADL), the UK’s largest bus manufacturer. Seven years on, the successful BYD ADL partnership has over 1300 BYD ADL eBuses in service or on order in the UK.

Through this established partnership, BYD ADL has supported local transport authorities, such as Transport for London and major public transport operators including Go-Ahead and National Express, as well as key stakeholders in the new energy industry.

BYD ADL eBuses played a prominent role at COP26 serving as the official designated shuttle bus for the main venue, providing public transportation services to world leaders and delegates attending the conference.

The partnership continues to flourish through an ever-growing demand for pure-electric zero-emission eBuses in the UK, supporting the UK government’s strategy to achieve ‘net zero’ decarbonisation by 2050.

In Europe, over 2600 BYD eBuses have been delivered, or are on order, operating in over 20 countries across 100 cities, covering over 165 million kilometres, so far reducing carbon emissions by more than 175,000 tonnes.
