Forget diesel –electric hybrid buses! Hundreds of eBUS-12 pure electric buses are now running in 4 Chinese cities, including Shenzen, Changsha, Shaoguan and Xi’an, offering nose and air pollution-free public transit for urban areas whose air quality usually suffers from particulates emitted by diesel vehicles. The eBUS-12 was introduced in Europe at a car show in Belgium in October 2011 and Hertz just announced the use of eBuses at Los Angeles airport. Each e-Bus allows for a reduction of 95 tons/year of carbon dioxide and 30% lower operating costs than conventional diesel buses. BYD just won a contract to supply the city of Windsor Ontario (Canada) with a fleet of 10 all-electric buses- a first for any North American city. BYD has also introduced e6 Taxis with a pilot project in Shenzhen in 2010.
