BYD buses will be introduced by Japan's Kanto Railway Company due to the success of domestic new energy vehicles overseas
【PhoneAuto News】As the leader in domestic new energy vehicles, BYD’s global influence is increasing day by day. In addition to its passenger car business, BYD’s commercial vehicle business has an even greater impact worldwide, with BYD’s pure electric buses visible in many countries and regions. Recently, according to Nikkei Chinese News, the Japanese Kanto Railway Company will also introduce BYD’s pure electric buses.
It is reported that the Kanto Railway Company in Japan will introduce large-scale pure electric buses on June 1. This is the first time that large-scale route pure electric buses have been introduced in Ibaraki Prefecture. The company already has hybrid buses. By introducing large-scale pure electric buses this time, the region plans to increase the ownership rate of environmentally friendly vehicles such as pure electric buses to more than 40% by 2030, in order to promote greenhouse gas reduction plans in the transportation sector.

It is understood that the two new vehicles purchased this time are the “K8” pure electric buses produced by BYD. The vehicle is a step-free model that meets the requirements of barrier-free access, with a length of 10.5 meters, a width of 2.5 meters, and a height of 3.4 meters. The maximum carrying capacity is up to 81 people. It takes about 6 hours to fully charge the vehicle, and one charge can drive up to 220 kilometers. The two new BYD vehicles are scheduled to be put into operation in several cities in the southern part of Ibaraki Prefecture, including Mito City, Toride City, Tsukuba Mirai City, Bandō City, and Jōsō City. In addition to these two large BYD pure electric buses, one small BYD pure electric bus has also been introduced, which operates as a community bus in Tsukuba Mirai City.
The BYD K8 electric bus has already been introduced into the Japanese market.
According to previous reports, BYD began delivering the K8 electric bus in Japan in 2021 and plans to sell 2,000 units of this model in the next five years. The vehicle was priced at 38.5 million yen (approximately 2.47 million yuan) in 2020, significantly higher than the average price of tens of thousands of yuan for passenger cars, indicating that the price of BYD commercial vehicles is indeed much higher.
