The first articulated electric buses delivered by BYD Europe were formally put into operation in Oslo, Norway in January 2018. The two 18-metre buses are running on route 31 and 31E, the heaviest duty routes in Norway. The routes are operated by Nobia on behalf of Ruter. The two routes shuttle between Grorud and Tonsenhagen, registering distance of 17km and 24km respectively, carrying approximately 15 million customers a year and approximately 50,000 daily travelers. Nobina is the first European operator to operate articulated electric buses made in China.
