Goldstone Infratech in collaboration with BYD - a Chinese auto giant has launched a new urban electric bus in India, called the eBuzz K6. The bus is a 7-metre long, high floor bus that has a range of over 200 kms on a single charge. The electric bus will essentially be used as a 'feeder bus' for last mile connectivity. The electric bus will be made in India and will also be exported to countries such as Nepal.

The vehicle is equipped with a set of Lithium Ion Phosphate batteries which power an electric motor that make 241 bhp of peak power and 1500 Nm of peak torque. The top speed of the bus is limited to 80 kmph as per the norms for commercial vehicles in India. The bus also has regenerative braking and gets disc brakes all around to improve stopping power. The Goldstone BYD eBuzz K6 also comes standard with ABS.

Yesterday, I was on the Prince of Wales road waiting at the Fatima Nagar junction Signal, when a white colored bus passed on the main Solapur road. What fancied me is the word "Electric" written on it. All I could noticed is a "BYD" mark on the back. Not a long low floor bus, rather a short bus and certainly not on testing.

Any idea, BYDs are being put into service here in Pune?

PMPML recently received a few Olectra-BYD 9m electric buses. I am not sure of the number, I think there are around 10 of them
