Recently, under the witness of Pravind Kumar Jugnauth, premier of Mauritius, Alan Gano, minister of Mauritius Ministry of Transport, the first batch of BYD K6 electric buses made their debut and officially started operation in Mauritius. In an interview, Mauritius premier pointed out that the operation of BYD K6 electric buses marked a new milestone in the country’s public transport sector and would further accelerate the building a modern public transport network in the country. The minister echoed the premier’s view, saying the new buses will provide much better transportation services for passengers.
On the first day of their official operation, Rao Ramah, General Manager of Mauritius largest bus operator, National Transport Cooperation (NTC), delivered a keynote speech, saying the new buses are ushering in a brand new era of public transport for the country. “It may be a small step for NTC, but is definitely a big step for our country”, he added.
Equipped with BYD power batteries and six-in-one high voltage power control technology, BYD K6 electric bus has a number of customized features to suit the operation needs in Mauritius. With 20 seats, K6 is able to drive 225 km continuously after getting fully recharged. It can get recharged at solar photovoltaic power stations. On board, the bus has an IC card reader, a DVD player, several sound amplifiers, ergonomically designed seats, safety monitoring cameras, USB portals and displays, ensuring the safe and comfortable travel for all passengers.
According to NTC, the first batch of BYD K6 electric buses are mainly targeted to provide greener and more convenient transportation services for commuters, local residents and travelers. In 2019, BYD started cooperation with LEAL Energie Ltd. and entered Mauritius. Its T3 electric logistic vehicles, with high reliability and consistently good performances, quickly earned the recognition of the local operators.
As one of the leading players in the new energy vehicle industry, BYD is fully committed to helping countries and governments around the world to cut carbon emissions. It aims to help Mauritius cut the emissions of greenhouse gases by 40% by 2030. So far, BYD has established a solid presence in over 50 countries and regions across the world, becoming an essential part of many people’s daily lives.
