LOS ANGELES - Jan. 26, 2022 - PRLog -- BYD ("Build Your Dreams"), the world leader in electric vehicles, Wednesday introduced its Type A battery electric vehicle, a zero-emission school bus that combines design, performance and safety together in a package built to meet the needs of students and administrators.

The BYD Type A offers innovative vehicle-to-grid technology, allowing the vehicle to serve as a power storage resource when it's not transporting students. The Type A can seat up to 30, and can be equipped with an ADA liftgate capable of lifting 800 pounds. The bus has a range of up to 140 miles on a single charge.

"This is a timely solution: BYD's Type A battery electric school bus is designed to be there for school districts 24 hours a day, both as a vehicle and power storage resource, said Stella Li, President of BYD North America. "The BYD combination of top-notch safety features, innovative design and reliable performance makes this a practical and highly affordable zero-emission solution."

Safety

BYD made safety the top priority in its school bus design. Standard safety features include a high strength steel construction body, electronic stability control to aid handling, and an electronic braking system to ensure more evenly distributed brake force.

At the heart of the BYD Type A is its lithium iron phosphate battery, the safest and most reliable in the electric vehicle industry.

In addition, BYD adds an additional layer of protection with its Predictive Stop Armâ„¢, which monitors approaching traffic and notifies students as they exit the bus when it is safe to cross.

With length options of 26.7-feet, 24.5-feet and 22.9 feet, BYD's Type A battery-electric school bus is perfect for routes with fewer students and for transporting those with disabilities.

BYD buses can be equipped with HSM 3-point lap-shoulder belts, integrated child seats, and portable restraints. These school bus seats are not only designed to keep children safer, but they have the benefits of improving behavior, reducing bullying, and minimizing driver distraction.

Our Technology

"Just like our Type D bus introduced last year, our Type A bus bi-directional charging capability is a game changer," said Samuel Kang, BYD's Head of Total Technology Solutions. "School buses can be charged overnight when energy demand is low, and clean emission free energy can be fed back into the classroom during school hours when the bus is parked keeping classrooms well-lit and students and teachers plugged-in."
