    1. In 2021, The Europe E-Bus Market reported volume of XX thousand units and generated a revenue of $XX Million with a CAGR of 21 percent in terms of volume till 2027.
    2. Of 14,990 new public buses registered in 2021 in the European markets (EU27 expanded with UK, Iceland etc.), 59.4 per cent are already equipped with alternative drives. 
    3. The share of battery-electric transit buses increased from 14.8 per cent in 2020 to XX per cent in 2021 and  Hybrid buses, mostly mild hybrids, are still making slow progress in which registrations climbed from 19.7 to 21.8 percent (3,285 vehicles).  However, buses with fuel cells made a significant leap from 47 vehicles in 2020 to  a total of 158 new entries in 2021.
    4. The European electric bus market has been driven by several key factors, predominantly government support for electric vehicles, and increasing need to reduce greenhouse gas emission. 
    5. The electric bus market in this region is also driven by factors such as increase in demand for fuel-efficient, high-performance, and low-emission buses, stringent government rules & regulations toward vehicle emission, and reduction in battery prices. However, high manufacturing cost & serviceability restrict the market growth to an extent. 
    6. Europe will be one of the main growing e-bus markets that will progress from the current 7-10% to 25-50% more in terms of volume in the upcoming years with more and more demand and growth drivers.
    7. The demand for fuel-efficient buses has increased recently owing to rise in prices of petrol and diesel. This is due to depleting fossil fuel reserves and growing tendency of companies to gain maximum profit from these oil reserves. Hence, these factors give rise to the need for advanced fuel-efficient technologies, leading to a surge in demand for electrically powered buses for travel. 
    8. Different governments across Europe are taking initiatives to replace the petroleum based automotive fleet with electric powered vehicles. Different countries provide incentives and have been framing regulations to support the electric vehicle adoption by opting for green energy vehicles. 
    9. The policies related to electric buses in the EU are mainly focused on technological optimization and market development. 
    10. The European Commission supported a Europe-wide electromobility initiative, Green e-mobility, worth €41.8 million (USD 46.9 million), in partnership with forty-two partners from industry, utilities, electric vehicle manufacturers, municipalities, universities and technology and research institutions to develop public e-mobility like electric buses.
    11. The Swiss government plans to increase the penetration of electric vehicles to 15% by the end of 2022. The country has the Electric Transport Green Deal. The key objective of the green deal is to eliminate vehicle emissions by 2025, which would boost the electric bus market. Electric-drive buses contain fewer moving parts than buses with traditional internal combustion engines and hence these will have a greater market in the coming years.
    12. Average maintenance costs for a diesel bus totals $0.88/mile, whereas maintenance costs for BEBs average to $0.64/mile. The electric propulsion system within BEBs relies on magnetic induction rather than combustion, resulting in less vibration, smoother and quieter ride and therefore being preferred more in the European region. 
    13. Electric drive vehicles deliver instant maximum torque capabilities (low-end torque), making them better than internal combustion vehicles for hauling heavy loads and accelerating up hills, as a result of which multiple European countries are adopting more electric buses.
    14. Denmark established a target of 100% renewable primary or final energy, including electricity generation, renewable transport, and renewable heating and cooling by 2030. 
    15. VDL’s largest fleet of 102 VDL City electric buses has been operational in Oslo since 2021, largely driven by the Norwegian capital’s goal for public transport to be emission-free by 2028. 
    16. Germany is one of the leaders in electric vehicle manufacturing and there is massive support from the government to electrify the bus fleet. The German government has introduced a new grant policy for funding the production of electric buses. The program aims at supporting the market penetration of electric buses in Germany. The specific aim is to subsidise at least 100 to 150 electric buses.
    17. The EU has a goal of meeting at least 32% of its final power consumption from renewable sources by 2030 and 14% of transportation energy from renewables by 2030.
    18. The national government’s Electric Bus Program currently has a budget of 300 Million EUR until the end of 2022 and provides grant coverage of up to 80 and 40 percent of incremental costs of electric and PHEV buses, respectively. 
    19. Apart from this the ministry subsidises up to 80 per cent of the additional costs in the purchase price for an electric bus compared to a diesel model thereby increasing the sales of electric buses.
    20. The EU Commission has also approved an increase of 300 million euros in Germany’s state aid for the purchase of electric buses and charging infrastructure.
    21. There are plans made by the  Governments of other countries like France, Italy etc. for transitioning the bus fleet to fully electric by 2030.
    22. More than 60% of the buses sold in 2021 in the Netherlands were electric which was an increase from 41% in 2020. With about 1,000 new buses sold every year, Netherlands will have the highest share yearly in terms of electric buses among all buses sold. It currently has more than 1,100 running electric buses across the country with Keolis being its largest operator.
    23. VDL, BYD and Ebusco are the market leaders. ABB is the market leader for charger suppliers. The majority of the demands comes from transit operators who are looking to electrify entire fleets by 2030
    24. The growth of plug-in hybrid buses has been particularly successful in the United Kingdom, Germany, and France. It has the potential to have a huge impact on the region’s e-vehicle boom. 
    25. The European Commission has approved the investment of USD 3.5 billion to support the electric vehicle battery supply chain. Furthermore, the EU plans to increase e-vehicle battery output by 2025 owing to which the PHEV segment of the European electric bus market is also expected to grow at a strong rate until 2027.
    26. Planning burden, unfamiliar bus and charging technologies that require capacity building for transit agency staff at all levels, technology options taking time and efforts to identify and select, as well as routes required to be altered in order to simultaneously optimise transportation service, BEB performance, and recharging efficiency are some of the roadblocks for European E-bus market.


    Bus technology continues to develop as other technologies improve; buses are constantly improving in energy efficiency, passenger comfort, and reducing air pollution. Some of these improvements in various nations have been driven by regulatory standards for urban passenger buses. More broadly, however, there seems to be heightened community awareness of the benefits of clean, comfortable buses.

    All well-utilized buses, regardless of which type of powertrain (mechanisms for generating bus propulsion) is used, offer an efficient public transportation method when compared to car usage; buses are space, energy, and emissions efficient. The advantages of electric buses have been recognized in the policies being implemented in several major cities around the world.


    The first argument to choose electric buses over diesel buses is that, while diesel buses are more efficient than private automobiles, they still contribute significantly to GHG emissions, which might be significantly decreased by using electric buses. As a result, several national and regional governments across the world are looking at ways to minimize GHG emissions from public transportation.

    S No Overview of Development Development Detailing Region of Development Possible Future Outcomes
    1 BYD Planning Big To Expand Electric Vehicles In Europe BYD also launched its electric bus in Finland a couple of months ago. Recently, a fresh batch of 76 BYD e-bus arrived in the capital city of Finland, Helsinki. Before that, BYD also made its debut in Ireland with a huge order of e-bus. EU This would enhance better EV Adoption and better suspension technologies harnessing.
    2 BYD delivers 76 electric buses to Nobina in Finland Chinese manufacturer BYD has delivered 76 electric buses to public transport operator Nobina for use in the Finnish capital Helsinki. This completes the order for a total of 119 vehicles. EU – Finland This would help in better presence and social responsibility on increased levels of requirements
    3 BYD, ADL partnership to supply 200 electric buses to Ireland’s NTA The single supplier framework agreement with the NTA will run for up to five years and covers the delivery of single deck long length battery-electric buses. The first 45 buses are expected to be delivered in 2022 for services in Athlone and the Dublin Metropolitan Areas. Ireland This would improve its presence and production capability of new generation housing platform system




    Over the past decade, European Nations cities have been witnessing an increasing trend in motorization with deteriorating air quality, and there have been calls to promote public transport as a way out of this gridlock. It is in this context that electric buses can play a positive role, as there are several benefits associated with the shift from conventional diesel buses to electric buses in terms of reduction in local pollution, noise, and fuel consumption.


    The ease of access and direct point-to-point connectivity provided by private modes of transport such as two wheelers and cars have resulted in an increase in the number of per capita trips and long-distance trips.


    The increase in transport demand and motorization rates is much higher than the infrastructure supply. This has resulted in the utilization of road space by vehicles beyond the carrying capacity (of these roads), resulting in congestion during peak hours.

    With 23,000 electric buses forecast to be in operation in 2025 (compared with around 1,200 buses currently in 2019), public transport is being electrified at a rapid pace.


    Many operators still do not fully comprehend the electric bus fleet business case and its operational implications. complexities. As a result, they are unable to compete successfully Furthermore, public transportation providers will be compelled to learn new abilities (such as battery maintenance upkeep) and will have to redefine themselves in order to accommodate brand-new dynamics. France, the United Kingdom, Poland, the Nordics, the Netherlands, and Germany together account for more than half the total number of electric buses in Europe today.


    In an agreement with Keolis Nederland BV, the Dutch division of global public transportation provider Keolis, BYD has acquired the largest single order for electric buses in Europe. The historic order calls for 259 pure-electric, zero-emission BYD eBuses to be delivered on a predetermined timeframe.


    Represents a significant commitment to electric transportation, as it is the largest European fleet to become electric at the same time.


    The agreement was struck after Keolis and BYD worked closely together to develop a demanding whole-life package that provides a complete transportation solution while also considering operational concerns and passenger comfort.


    BYD’s 8.7-meter midi bus, 12-meter, and new 13-meter eBus models will be in service for Keolis Nederland on routes throughout the IJssel-Vecht region of the Netherlands, including front-line operations in the municipalities of Zwolle, Apeldoorn, and Lelystad. BYD’s 13-metre variant features updated battery technology for increased range and ‘city-to-city’ capabilities.
