New energy technology company BYD leased 30 pure electric vehicles to Brazilian city São José dos Campos, to be used by the Secretariat of Citizen Protection, as the largest contract in Brazil, including 29 BYD e5’s and 1 BYD e6.
The vehicles were delivered in a handover ceremony on July 26. BYD won the public bid in April to loan electric cars to the police and other governmental agencies. Pure electric vehicles are economical, non-polluting, with low maintenance costs (compared with fuel-powered cars) and offer optimum performance, bringing sustainability and environmental preservation.
This 36-month leasing project was implemented after successful tests of a BYD e6, from October 2017 to March 2018, which achieved excellent results in terms of availability, economy and maintenance cost.
