BYD Expanding US Electric Truck And Bus Manufacturing Facility

BYD Expanding US Electric Truck And Bus Manufacturing Facility

Andy Swanton, vice president of the BYD Truck division, says the capacity of the current factory is 150 buses and 100 trucks a year, but that could grow to 1,000 vehicles a year when the factory is fully built out. A 40,000-square-foot extension of the factory is scheduled to open soon as well as a 200,000 square foot expansion that should be completed by the end of the year. The company’s battery unit operates a separate lithium ion battery assembly facility in a 44,000 square foot facility a few miles away from the truck and bus factory.
