The mayor of Windsor, Ontario has sent a letter of intent to China’s BYD Motors, a bus-making company, for the purchase of up to ten buses. If Mayor Eddie Francis’s letter bears fruit, Windsor will become the first city in North American to use these all-electric long-range buses. BYD Motors has already piloted a public transportation program in Helsinki, Finland.

The bus manufacturer is pleased with the letter and hopes that it is just the first step in a long successful journey across the continent. Talking about this dream, BYD Motors President Stella Li said, “One of our primary goals was to position Windsor among the first cities in North America to pioneer the efficient use of electric buses within its public transit authority and to establish Windsor as a hub for the development, manufacture and commercialization of energy products including electric buses.”
