China PHEV Buses 2016

Image result for PHEV Bus China

Complementing this report, which focused solely on BEV Buses, with PHEV sales data now in hand, we have a clearer picture of where the eBuses market is going in China, while BEV buses continued to grow in 2016, albeit in a more moderate rate, last year PHEV buses have actually seen their sales decrease.

Has PHEV technology peaked in 2015, like HEVs did in 2013?

  1. Hi Jose, Are the bus sales above cumulative or per annum production? Thx Matt

  2. I'm looking for a new paratransit van, low-floor and low-emission front-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid. Seniors and disabled need such a vehicle. The drive train could be utilized on heavy duty van fleets, perhaps doubling their mileage economy.
