15 BYD Buses Hit The Road in Norway

Vy Buss, part of Norway’s Vy Group, has taken delivery of its first 15 pure-electric, emissions-free eBuses from BYD. The company now has nearly 1,300 eBuses either delivered, or, on order across Europe.

This is BYD Europe’s first delivery of BYD’s Class II buses. The 13-meter (40-foot) model includes an upgraded battery for extended range. The 18-meter (60-foot) articulated eBus offers operational flexibility where public transport is in high demand.

We’re delighted,” said Ole Engebret Haugen, CEO at Vy Buss, “Together, we create a more sustainable environment and increase the safety of passengers and other road users.”

Isbrand Ho, Managing Director of BYD Europe, said, “I mentioned in October last year that this was an important time in the history of BYD in Europe. Little did I know then that the coronavirus pandemic would make this delivery even more significant.”


Vy Buss AS is one of Scandinavia’s largest bus companies with around 7,700 employees and 3,000 buses in Norway and Sweden. Vy Buss carries around half a million people daily in Norway and Sweden. For more information: https://www.vy.no/en
