To meet varied requirements in both urban and suburban areas, BYD J6 also has three different models available for its customers.

According to BYD, the company has so far delivered four batches of electric buses to its customers in Japan. On February 23, 2015, BYD exported five units electric buses K9 to its customer in Kyoto in Japan. Currently, there is one BYD electric buses among every three electric buses operating in Japan and BYD is the first electric bus brand in Japan. BYD electric buses, ranging from K9, K7, to J6, have made their presence in various parts across the country. They are widely used for urban public transportation, tourist transportation at ports and inside scenic areas. In Kyoto alone, BYD electric bus fleet now boasts a combined mileage of over 500,000 kilometers, helps the city cut the carbon dioxide emissions by 600,000 tons and allows its customer to save operation costs by eight million Yen.

In the next five years, BYD is aiming to increase its sales of electric buses to 1,000 units.
