K12A, the longest electric bus in the world



The Chinese company BYD has presented the K12A, an electric bus with a total length of 27 meters, which ensures that it is the "longest electric bus in the world".

The K12A is the world's first 27-m pure electric bi-articulated bus that has been presented at the BYD headquarters in Shenzhen (China).

The K12A bus is designed for 250 passengers and develops a maximum speed of 70 km / h (40mph). It has a range of 186 miles on a single full charge. The manufacturer claims that the K12A is also the world's first four-wheel drive electric bus capable of smoothly switching between full and rear-wheel drive. This allows you to move more efficiently depending on changes in the terrain and also reduces the overall energy consumption.

The K12A will be, according to BYD, a new revolution of the rapid transit bus systems.

BYD's K12A model with its record size is another milestone in the development of electric transport.

China is the undisputed king of electric buses. It is estimated that 99% of all electric buses on the planet travel on Chinese roads. For reference: the Chinese metropolis of Shenzhen at the end of 2017 completely electrified its entire urban fleet of 16,000 buses.

BYD is one of the largest manufacturers of electric vehicles in the world. Well known in China and the United States. It is known for projects such as the construction of the largest battery factory in the world.
