BYD is a firm that we currently know in our nation, although thus far in bus layout, such as the electrical ones you can discover in the facility of Madrid. But the brand has actually additionally made its initial attempts in the light lorry market in recent years in our nation. However, the electric cars and truck is a new opportunity for an excellent offense.

And also those who have actually not yet gotten here
In addition to these conglomerates or brands that work in Europe or have companies that can already be seen in some countries of the Old Continent, we locate others that have not yet landed in Europe or, on the other hand, are best sellers that for the moment stay in the Chinese market.


It is one of the brands that assure the most in this section. Currently, the Nio ES8 SUV is authorized offer for sale in Europe, but it seems that Norway will be the initial country to obtain it.
