SPAIN: Badajoz Mayor Francisco Javier Fragoso attended a ceremony on May 9 marking the delivery of 15 battery electric buses from Chinese manufacturer BYD.

Transport operator Tubasa, a Grupo Ruiz subsidiary, placed the order in July 2018, as part of the city’s plan to have a completely electric bus fleet. The 12 m long buses are equipped with iron-phosphate traction batteries.

The order is BYD’s second electric bus order in Spain, coming a few months after an order for eight 12 m buses from Badalona.
