The world’s leading new energy vehicle (NEV) manufacturer, Build Your Dreams (BYD), has signed a dealership agreement with Petros Petropoulos for BYD battery-electric truck sales and aftersales in Greece.
The agreement with the long-established transportation experts will see the rollout of emissions-free all-electric eTrucks across the whole of Greece, initially from their two main locations in Athens and Thessaloniki. BYD will be supplying the complete range of its eTrucks to customers in Greece, along with a highly efficient after-sales and customer support service.
Models on sale in Greece will include the ETP3 panel van designed for urban distribution operations, the ETM6 cargo truck ideal for inner-city distribution, the ETH8 distribution truck and the EYT yard tractor for harbour terminals and onsite operations.
All BYD pure-electric vehicles provide long driving range capabilities, low noise pollution for urban and night-time operation, and with zero-emissions, are a positive step forward in providing a cleaner, healthier environment. Petros Petropoulos is accepting orders now for BYD eTrucks and eVans with deliveries commencing early in 2022.
Isbrand Ho, BYD Europe managing director, said: “We selected Petros Petropoulos as our dealership partner for eTrucks in Greece because of their unparalleled experience in automotive-related distribution and manufacturing which spans a remarkable 99 years.
“They are widely recognised as industry and market experts in Greece and their knowledge of the market, the consumers and the aftercare support they can provide makes them the ideal dealership partner for BYD.”
This comes at a pivotal moment as commercial transportation providers are actively seeking new energy solutions to reduce their carbon footprints.
Petros Plakakis, Petros Petropoulos business unit manager, said: “We are delighted to be the dealer in Greece for BYD eTrucks and eVans, which means we now can offer a range of fully-electric, zero-emissions solutions to our commercial customers that are kind to the environment.
“Through our nine locations spread across key cities, including SKANTRAK in Athens and SAVATIS in Thessaloniki, we will provide first class aftercare support to all our fleet and business operators looking to lower their running costs while maximising vehicle utilisation.”
