An official hand-over on Wednesday 13th of May at EMT Madrid’s Fuencarral Operations Centre, was attended by José Luis Martínez Ameida, Mayor of Madrid – Borja Carabante Muntada, Councilor for Mobility – Alfonso Sánchez Vicente, Manager at EMT Madrid and Joaquín Bellido, Sales Bus Director for BYD Iberia.

The latest BYD fleet of pure-electric, 100% emissions-free eBuses replaces existing diesel-powered models, and will significantly reduce EMT Madrid’s CO2 emissions while increasing further the number of zero-emission buses on the Spanish capital’s roads. The new BYD eBuses will meet the demands of the high-frequency “route 52” service connecting Puerta del Sol and Santamarca.

The BYD fleet will also be the first to operate on a new city-centre perimeter service which will form part of the “Madrid’s 360 Environmental Sustainability Strategy”.
