Major European cities such as London (UK), Copenhagen, Denmark, Paris (France), and Madrid (Spain), have made commitments to purchase zero-emission electric buses. This has fuelled the growth in electric bus sales. The demand for electric buses is increasing due to regional electrification plans. Germany, for instance, has set a goal to sell half of its urban buses powered by BEV or hybrid technology by 2030. Chile, on the other hand, has set a goal to electrify 25% 2025 of the city’s public transport bus fleet.
