BYD, a global leader in electric vehicles, has unveiled the Type D battery electric school bus. According to the manufacturer, the new vehicle “has unsurpassed safety and performance characteristics.”
For those who are not familiar with the classification of school buses, let us clarify that the Type D or transit bus weighs more than 4.5 tons and is designed to carry more than 10 people. There is only one front door in such a bus and is located in front of the front axle.
Available in 10.7 m, 11.6 m and 12.2 m lengths, the BYD Type D electric bus is said to be suitable for transporting students to classes, excursions, sporting events and other events. In its maximum configuration, it can accommodate up to 84 people. A rear door is available as an option. The bus can travel up to 250 km without recharging.
To the advantages of the bus, the manufacturer carries support for bi-directional charging. School buses can be charged at night when energy consumption is low, and during school hours when the bus is parked, electricity can be fed back to classrooms.
In terms of safety, the bus is equipped with an electronic stability control system for easier handling, a collision avoidance system and an all-round visibility system to detect pedestrians and cyclists when the bus is moving at low speeds. In addition, an additional layer of protection for children exiting the bus is provided by the foldable Predictive Stop Arm, which, during bus stops, not only warns drivers of other vehicles that children may be on the road, but also monitors oncoming traffic to alert students when it may not be safe to cross the road. Buses can be equipped with three-point shoulder straps, built-in child seats and portable restraints.
The BYD Type D uses lithium iron phosphate batteries, which are the safest and most reliable EV batteries today.
