Chinese-made electric buses arrive in Ecuador

11:08, 06-Feb-2019



Ecuador has received its first fleet of Chinese-made electric buses designed to modernize urban public transit and improve sustainability in Guayaquil, the country's main port and second most populous city, with some two million residents.

The fleet of 20 BYD brand buses arrived in the Port of Manta, in western Manabi province, on Monday, where vice president Otto Sonnenholzner was present to receive the units, along with executives of privately-owned transport company Saucin, which purchased them.

The buses "represent more comfortable, higher quality mobility (that is) environmentally friendly (with) zero pollution," said Sonnenholzner.

The arrival of these buses makes Ecuador the second South American country, after Chile, to embrace electric public transit. Chile's capital Santiago has incorporated 100 units into the city's fleet.
