China has played a significant role in the global electric vehicle (EV) market, and Chinese electric buses have contributed to this influence. Chinese companies, particularly BYD (Build Your Dreams) and Hutong, have become leaders in the electric bus market globally. BYD, in particular, has expanded its presence in numerous countries, providing electric buses to various cities. Chinese electric buses have driven advancements in EV technology, including battery technology and electric drivetrains. The experience gained in manufacturing buses has contributed to technological innovations that have influenced the broader electric vehicle industry. China’s scale of production is immense, allowing for cost reductions through economies of scale. This has made Chinese electric buses more cost-competitive compared to those from other regions, making them an attractive option for many countries looking to adopt electric public transportation. China’s government has been actively supporting the development and adoption of electric vehicles, including buses. Subsidies, incentives, and supportive policies have created a conducive environment for the growth of the electric bus industry. Chinese electric bus manufacturers have expanded their reach to international markets. BYD and Hutong, in particular, have exported electric buses to various countries, contributing to the global adoption of electric public transportation. The adoption of electric buses often goes hand-in-hand with the development of charging infrastructure. As China invests heavily in charging infrastructure for electric buses domestically, this experience and technology can be applied globally. The success of electric buses in China has influenced policies and strategies in other countries. Some nations have looked to China’s model of promoting electric buses as part of their own efforts to reduce emissions and promote sustainable transportation.
