BYD also shared its future commercial vehicle plans for the European market, working in collaboration with carefully selected regional dealer partners providing localised sales and service support. There were test drive sessions too, where guests were given the opportunity to personally experience the many benefits of BYD eTruck technology.
The Netherlands, with its strong commitment to incentivising the adoption of electric vehicles, is the perfect fit for zero-emission BYD pure-electric trucks.
BYD, founded in 1995, is globally renowned for its pioneering advancements in power batteries and EV technologies for cars, buses and trucks. BYD is the only NEV producer to have developed its own powertrain systems, power batteries, automotive semiconductors, motors and motor controller systems. This experience, together with BYD’s unparalleled strength in vertical integration has led to exceptional ePlatform innovation. These attributes have been pivotal to BYD’s achievements. In August, BYD rolled out its 5 millionth NEV, the first automaker in the world to achieve this milestone, and made an impressive leap up on the Fortune Global 500 list, ranking No. 212. Record deliveries in the first half of this year have also led to a 200% jump in profit for BYD.
