BYD, the world’s largest manufacturer of electric vehicles, will showcase a wide range of innovative, battery-electric coaches at the 2022 United Motorcoach Association (UMA) Motorcoach Expo held now through Feb. 26 at the Long Beach Convention Center.

Motorcoaches on display at the expo will include the 23-foot, 16-seat C6M, the 35-foot C8M and its double-deck variant the C8MS, the 40-foot C9M, and the 45-foot, 57-seat C10M.

“The C6M is perfect for comfortably and efficiently moving small groups of people while our larger models are ideal for public transit or for transporting employees, students, travelers, and tourists,” said Patrick Duan, BYD Senior Vice President, Operations. “These motorcoaches are powered by the safest, longest lasting battery in the industry. Additionally, our motorcoaches provide for significant operational cost savings over the lifetime of the vehicle.”

In addition to the array of motorcoaches, BYD will bring a large cadre of experts to answer questions and help customers find the right zero-emission solution and financing options. The BYD team and vehicles will be at Booth 543.
