The share of electric buses registered in Europe rose to 6.1 percent as that of diesels dropped some 10 percentage points to 72.9 percent since 2019, reveals ACEA.
ACEA figure cover all new medium and heavy buses (over 3.5 tonnes) in the European Union. The organisation puts urban buses (where e-buses are more numerous) together with tourist coaches (where electric traction is yet to arrive). The drop in diesel bus registrations also reflects the impact of Covid-19 on the Class III bus market. This is estimated at 27 percent.
Hybrid buses’ market share rose from 5.7 to 9.5 percent since 2019. Alternatively, powered vehicles (APVs) now represent over a third of the EU bus and coach market.
