The K9, BYD's first electric bus, has 32 seats and a range of 250 km. It can go at a maximum speed of 70 km per hour (44 miles per hour).
BYD launched a second electric bus this year, the C9, with a 53-seat capacity. It can go up to 400 km on a single change, and it can travel as fast as 100 km per hour, the company claims.
Both the C9 and the K9 are powered by the same BYD iron phosphate batteries that power the C6 and C8.
