BYD delivers 29 Yuan Pro EV cars to Walmart Costa Rica

In in Costa Rica, the Chinese automaker BYD has just delivered 29 Yuan Pro EV electric cars to Walmart de México y Centroamérica.  

BYD says that this is the biggest New Energy Vehicle (EVs) fleet in the country and that Walmart will purchase more Yuan Pro EVs in 2022. BYD has not been more specific about intended numbers either from Walmart in Costa Rica or for BYD electric vehicle orders for Costa Rica overall.

“Walmart aims to achieve zero emissions in all its operations globally by 2040 (…) 47.6% of our fleet of light vehicles will be electric for next year..”

– Richard Vargas, CAM Biformat Operations Director of Walmart

With the superlative announcement that the delivery of the Yuan Pro EVs represents the largest order for electric vehicles in Costa Rica to date, we can also, therefore, assume that less than 29 of BYD’s Han electric cars were delivered earlier this year.

The Yuan EV in other variants uses BYD’s blade battery but the Yuan Pro EV variant was not specifically mentioned on the BYD website.
