Uruguay Releases Test Results for BYD Electric Bus

In Uruguay, BYD has ended trials of electric bus and taxis. The results are now in.

We don’t know if this deal (Uruguay may purchase 500 electric BYD buses) will come to fruition, but it seems that the BYD ebus took the task. At the announcement met the entire hall of officials:

“The Uruguay Ministry of Industry Energy and Mining together with the Ministry of Transportation, The Government of Montevideo and Uruguay’s National Utility Company (UTE) released the testing results of the BYD zero-emissions, pure-electric, 12-meter, Rapid Transit eBus (K9) and BYD e6 5-passenger pure-electric eTaxi last week. In attendance at the public announcements were the Ministers of Industry, Energy and Mining, Mr. Roberto Kreimerman, Minister of Transportation, Mr. Enrique Pintado, Mayor of Montevideo, Mrs. Ana Olivera, National Director of Energy, Mr. Ramón Mendez, President of UTE, Mr. Gonzalo Casaravilla, Mobility Director of Montevideo, Mr. Nestor Campal and several public transport operators, international finance organizations, and other national and local authorities. UTE led the evaluation projects for the BYD electric Bus and eTaxi for the past four months under the “Uruguay Electric Mobility Committee” with the cooperation of local BYD partner, CTS Auto S.A.”

Uruguay’s National Utility Company (UTE) said that the BYD ebus has an average range of 252 km (~157 miles) per night-time charge and consumes 1.26 kWh / km (for the 324 kWh battery pack). Such results were noted after 1,279 kilometers (~800 miles) across 4 different Montevideo urban routes, at different times and with different speeds.

Gonzalo Casaravilla, President of UTE commented:

“the BYD electric bus is ubiquitously functional operating in the Uruguay Metropolitan Transport Systems.”

Minister Kreimerman (of Industry and Energy) emphasized:

“Electric vehicles reduce environmental pollution, city noise pollution and national fossil-fuel dependence. Considering that the transportation sector represents over 30% of the total energy consumed in the country, it is very important to domesticate this fuel spend. The electrified public transportation is in pivotal for the country’s energy policy and the transformation to renewable energies.”

Interesting are the results of the economic study, which indicate that electric buses as well as taxis can be a viable option, provided the operator can afford the higher upfront costs:

“The economic study presented by one of the members of the Committee, Mr. Gonzalo Marquez, showed that the life time total-cost of ownership (TCO) of an electric bus was 60% less than a standard diesel bus (considering initial purchase costs, energy re-fueling cost and the lowered maintenance cost of electric buses during operation). In the case of electric taxis analyzed, the life time total cost of ownership was estimated at 50% that of traditional gasoline taxis.”
