BYD Down Under: Brisbane has ordered eleven electric buses to serve at its airport. While they will be build by Australian Carbridge, battery technology is BYD’s. The Chinese company only recently secured a contract to deliver 40 electric buses to Sydney airport.

Nissan Leaf heads to Chile: Nissan Chile sold 25 units of the little EV to utility Enel, which offered it to employees via a raffle. The sale is part of an initiative geared exclusively towards fleet operators and Enel also set up a rebate scheme for members of staff.

And off to Heathrow Airport where 17 Nissan Leaf arrived. Twelve will serve security and luggage teams while the remaining five form a pool. They come in the wake of a bigger electrification effort at London’s airport, which includes infrastructure and other EVs.
