BYD, the private Chinese company that is a world leader in electric transportation, has expanded its penetration of the European market with its first order in Denmark, for 27 of its 12-meter pure electric buses to run in Copenhagen.

The Danish order follows a first ever order from Portugal earlier this year.

The order was placed by Anchersen, which operates on 19 of Movia bus routes in Copenhagen. It is the company's first electric bus order as part of a move away from diesel-operated vehicles.

The vehicles, which do not rely on opportunity charging but will be charged overnight at the Anchersen bus terminal in Avedore Holme, will be able to operate the whole day on a single charge.

The BYD buses are planned to start operation at the end of 2019, running from the north to the south of Copenhagen city, between Emdrup Torv and Lergravsparken. 

Soren Englund, COO at Anchersen, said, "Our company is showing that we are ready for the latest developments. We are now at the forefront of the transformation of the public transportation environment to zero emission electric power."
