Chile will be second only to China with the highest number of EV buses?
BYD just delivered 100 all-electric buses to the port of San Antonio, Chile. Those buses should not be confused with another 100 Yutong E12 electric buses that also were ordered for Santiago.
Together, Chile will have 200 electric buses (all in its capital), which is one of the highest numbers in the world.
“The Chilean capital will have 200 in total, the government said. The 100 that recently arrived were manufactured by Chinese firm BYD Electronic International Co Ltd (0285.HK), financed by the local subsidiary of the Italian power utility Enel Generacion Chile SA (ENGX.SN) and will be operated by Metbus, a private Chilean company.
智利政府表示：“智利首都将会拥有200辆纯电动公共汽车。最近到货的100辆纯电公共汽车是由比亚迪电器国际有限公司 (0285.HK)生产，采购资金由意大利的电力公司的智利分公司Enel Generacion Chile SA (ENGX.SN) 提供，最终由智利的一家名为Metbus的私营公司负责运营
Another 100 due to be added to the Santiago fleet are being financed by French energy generation firm Engie Energia Chile SA (ECL.SN) and manufactured by China’s Zhengzhou Yutong Bus Co Ltd (600066.SS).
将要加入圣地亚哥车队的另外100辆纯电公共汽车则是由法国能源生产公司的智利分公司Engie Energia Chile SA (ECL.SN) 出资，由中国郑州宇通公共汽车有限公司(600066.SS)负责生产。
According to the Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, that’s just the beginning:
“Chile will be second only to China as a nation with the greatest quantity of electric buses in the world,”
