The BYD C6 is a fully electric midibus manufactured by Chinese company BYD, which specialises in electric vehicles and new energy solutions.

The bus design incorporates large-capacity Lithium-Iron-Phosphate batteries which allow the bus to travel more than 200km on a single charge, under urban road conditions. Private operators ShareTransport and Grab first trialled the bus in 2018, and several similar BYD D6R buses are expected to enter service with SMRT Buses in the near future, destined for SMRT Bus Service 825, the only public bus service in Singapore operating using shorter-length buses.

The bus seats four-abreast with a central aisle running the length of the bus. All seats also have hand grips to provide commuters with additional support while moving within the bus. Emergency hammers are mounted on pillars in-between windows.

At the front of the bus, the driver’s cab is separated from the passenger compartment by a single handlebar. Access to the cab is offered primarily via a driver’s door on the right side of the vehicle.
