BYD joins forces with a Spanish company to produce electric buses in Spain

BYD, a manufacturer of new energy vehicles and electric batteries, has signed a framework agreement with Grupo Castrosua, a specialist in the development and manufacture of bus and coach bodies in Spain, to produce customized 12-meter electric buses in Spain focused on the national market. .

These electric buses will be built on BYD’s advanced chassis with an electric drivetrain, and will incorporate Castrosua’s Nelec bodywork to offer high value-added electric transport solutions to Spanish customers.

BYD is the only electric vehicle producer that has developed its own propulsion systems, batteries, automotive semiconductors, propulsion motors, and motor control systems that integrate the entire bus ecosystem for greater operational efficiency.

Added to this technology is Castrosua’s experience in the design and assembly of innovative bodywork, in a partnership that will use the customizable Nelec bodywork. The agreement will also jointly offer an after-sales service, with customer-oriented technical support by both parties, as well as the supply of spare parts.

“It is a great honor for BYD to bring the world’s leading technology to Spain and start the alliance with Castrosua. We highly value our local collaborations and it is especially significant that the customized eBuses are manufactured locally in Spain, for Spanish customers”, said the vice president of Sales of BYD in Europe of eBus, Javier Contijoch.

“For the Castrosua group it is a satisfaction to reach this agreement and therefore add the multinational BYD as a strategic ally for the manufacture of electric urban and commuter buses. Castrosua and BYD join their strengths with the clear objective of offering the market a different proposal, highly personalized and innovative solutions”, added the CEO of Grupo Castrosua, Beatriz Castro.
