In early February, we got data on electric and hybrid-electric bus sales from China. Chinese sales of e-buses were about 115,700 for the year, bringing the number of e-buses in use, worldwide, to about 173,000.
Last year, the Chinese multiplied the number of e-buses in the world by three. This required a lot of work on their part. And it employed a lot of people.
The United States currently claims 400 electric buses, including all that are in use, all that are on order, and all for which money has been allocated for purchase. Fortunately, at least one new e-bus factory is being built in this country by BYD, a Chinese company.
