Adoption of electric buses into public transport urban fleets is growing worldwide. The transition began in China and is now spreading.
European electric bus sales marked a definitive jump in 2019. Some 4000 electric buses are now running in the Old Continent. This includes battery electric buses, plugin hybrids, trolleybus in motion charging, and fuel cell buses. European electric bus sales will probably turn out to have exceeded 10 per cent of overall city bus sales in 2019.
Looking at the broader market including Class II and Class III vehicles, European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA) finds that 4 percent of buses newly registered in Europe in 2019 were electric. This marks a 170 per cent rise.
