BYD Deploys Pair of Electric Buses for London Trials
Two electric buses have hit the streets of London as part of a trial to see if the technology is suitable for shorter routes around the capital.
The 12-metre single deck buses will service Victoria, Waterloo and London Bridge stations running on routes 507 and 521 from today.
According to Chinese manufacturer BYD Auto, the zero-emission buses should reduce running costs by about three quarters compared to a diesel bus and can travel up to 250km (155 miles) on a single four or five hour charge - sufficient to operate for a full day without the need to recharge.
