BYD has won an order for four 18-metre articulated eBuses from public transport operator, Moventis, in Spain.

This is a new customer for the automaker and also the first order for articulated eBuses in the Iberian region.

Moventis provides intercity passenger transport in the Valles Occidental area, near Barcelona. The electric articulated buses on order are scheduled for delivery to Sant Cugat de Vallès towards the end of 2022. They will operate on working days in Barcelona province.
