BYD has been awarded its first order from Transportes Metropolitanos de Barcelona, S. A. (TMB) for 25 new generation 12-metre BYD eBuses. The BYD pure-electric buses will operate in the City of Barcelona for the first time ever. The order follows TMB’s Strategic Plan 2025 to phase out diesel and accelerate the renewal and decarbonisation of its bus fleet to reduce air pollution in Barcelona. TMB had also previously collaborated with BYD, having conducted a test of an eBus in 2020. The adoption of clean energy vehicles in TMB’s fleet will see new buses put into service in Catalonia between 2022 and 2024.
