The all-new BYD BD11 double-decker bus marks the next step in UK public transportation.

BYD, a leading manufacturer of new energy vehicles, debuted its latest innovation, the all-new electric double-decker bus, the BYD BD11, at the London Bus Museum. This museum houses the first electric bus with a BYD K9E chassis dedicated to the London public transport network.

The BYD BD11, designed for London, will soon start operating in the UK with plans for a provincial model to follow. It features BYD’s Blade Battery with a capacity of up to 532 kWh, allowing for rapid charging from 0 to 100 per cent in just two hours. This innovative battery is integrated into the chassis to save weight, increase driving range, and provide high levels of stability and maneuverability, while also increasing interior space for passengers.

The BYD BD11 comes with an integrated thermal management system and advanced safety features, including the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS). BYD is the only NEV producer to have developed its own powertrain systems, power batteries, automotive semiconductors, motors, and motor controller systems. There are over 1,800 BYD e Buses in operation on UK roads, with a total operating mileage of more than 80 million miles, resulting in a reduction of 137 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. Last year, the company introduced new eBus innovations for the European market with the launch of the B12.

BYD is committed to technological innovation and spearheading the global transition towards eco-conscious public transportation,” comments Frank Thorpe, Managing Director, BYD UK Commercial Vehicles. “The BYD BD11 will play a pivotal role in contributing to the reduction of air pollution in London and, soon after, the UK’s wider carbon neutrality goals,”

We are proud to launch our own all-new electric double decker bus with  highly innovative, world-leading technology for safe and reliable electric mobility, providing operators with modern eco-friendly eBus options that meet their specifications, thus providing more people the choice to use clean, non-polluting bus services in the future.”
