January 21st, UAE: The sixth "Zayed Future Energy Prize" results were announced globally, and the Chairman of BYD Chuanfu Wang has won the Lifetime Achievement Award.

In May of 2013, 45 BYD e6 taxis launched in Hong Kong. Low-carbon environmental philosophy BYD electric cars delivered won public’s high compliment in China.

With excellent performance, BYD’ pure electric vehicles also landed large orders from the United States and Europe, as well as successful trials in North America, Europe and South America.

Rex Parris said he was honored to work with BYD, naming it a global leading company with battery and new energy technology and looked forward to joining hands in carrying out the production of pure electric buses and promotion of storage products as well as building more green cities. In June of the same year, the board of MTA (Los Angeles County Metropolitan Bus Authority), the second largest bus company in America approved the purchase of BYD electric buses as part of $30 million Clean Air bus technology pilot project. In July, the Netherland Schiphol Airport showed thick interests to BYD. BYD won 35 pure electric bus project and the electric buses will be provided for shuttle service at the airport.
