The BYD C9 is a fully electric bus 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 250km on a single charge, under urban road conditions.

This bus model was touted as “the first 100% electric coach in Singapore” via a livery wrap on the first registered unit of the bus (PC6284C).
