BYD lands EV orders from Atlanta and Georgia
Automotive News China | 2018/8/17

BYD Co., Chinas largest electrified vehicle maker, has won contracts to supply electric vehicles to the state of Georgia and the city of Atlanta.

The company will supply four electric vans and four electric buses to Georgia for use by local government agencies, universities and public transport operators, BYD said this week.

BYD also will supply four electric buses, three electric vans, three electric trucks and an unspecified number of electric taxis to Atlanta. 

BYD runs an assembly plant in Lancaster, Calif., that builds mainly electric buses and trucks. 

The company has delivered more than 700 electric buses to more than 40 customers across the U.S. In July, it established a joint venture with San Francisco investment company Generate Capital to launch a $200 million leasing program for electric buses in North America. 

BYD, headquartered in the south China city of Shenzhen, is listed in Hong Kong and Shanghai. It is partly owned by U.S. billionaire Warren Buffett.

In the first seven months of this year, the company sold 261,812 vehicles globally, including 93,677 EVs and plug-in hybrids.
