Budapest Public Transport Company BKV Tests Electric Bus
The public transport company BKV is testing an electrically driven bus in Budapest for several weeks. Passengers can try the new bus in southern Buda and in the downtown area from Wednesday, the Budapest transport centre BKK and the BKV said in a joint statement on Monday.

The 2Bus-12 is the product of Chinese manufacturer BYD, and thanks to the most advanced battery propulsion it is able to cover 250km on one charge and can reach up to 70 kph.

The bus uses half as much energy as a similar diesel-run bus, and it needs only four hours to charge the battery. The 12-meter-long vehicle can seat 25 passengers and has standing room for 55.
