Electric buses already in use in China, Shenzhen

Bookmark and Share

Although for many of you it might seem unreal, it’s true, electric powered buses are already in use in China’s Guangdong Province, in Shenzhen, the city that is neighboring Hong Kong.

I remember 3 years ago seeing on the Chinese news that local manufacturers were developing ways to power a bus by electric energy, with zero emissions. I remember talking to a friend of mine about it, that majored in physics. He told me, "How is that even gonna be possible? Think about it, how much energy can they store into those batteries so they can get a heavy load of passengers around during rush hour?"

But then again three years have passed, and we already see them in use on the streets of Shenzhen. And they can face the abundance of passengers, and the rush hours when traffic jams are normal.

Chinese manufacturers have started into alternative fuel options. Unlike from what other people in the west are thinking, they are actually really interested into the environment. China is actively researching into environmentally friendly fuel sources.. They are actually the world leader in research in this department, with most achievements.

Local manufacturer’s BYD e-BUS 12 is already in use in Shenzhen and is due to enter trial service in several European cities, including London, Copenhagen, Frankfurt and Amsterdam, in the coming months.

BYD cites its own Fe Battery, which can be recycled, solar panels installed on top of the bus, and a trip computer on the instrument panel, which provides service information for the driver.
