BYD Bendi- bus

Recently we posted pictures and details of the BYD battery powered double decker for London.
Below are pictures of the BYD articulated single deck vehicle that was also on display at Kortrijk.

The same eBus concept has been applied to this vehicle as the double decker giving a battery powered vehicle capable of carrying large numbers with the ability to load and off-load quickly. The bendi-bus concept is unpopular in the UK but many other countries in Europe continue to embrace the idea without hangups about road safety.

This vehicle can receive a quick charge via a pantagraph located in the rear section

Other bendi-buses on display included the Volvo 7900 Hybrid (below)

The Sileo (below) is manufactured in Germany and is 100% electrically powered
