BYD Builds American Dream By Getting Electric Buses Rolling – Forbes

Stella Li first joined BYD 18 years ago as a marketing manager. She recalls that during her first time representing BYD at the International Consumers Electronics Show, she walked from one exhibition booth to another to make the introduction: “We are BYD. We will become the largest lithium-ion battery manufacturer in China.”

The response?

“They said, you’re already the third one to tell us that you’re China’s No.1.” Li chuckles as the old days flash back.

Today’s BYD, which stands for “build your dream,” is not only China’s but the world’s largest manufacturer of lithium-ion batteries, servicing global clients such as Samsung, HTC and Motorola. Yet Li’s job, overseeing the U.S. market as senior vice president, isn’t that much easier, as BYD is pushing hard to build a new reputation as a global brand of electric vehicles. With its electric bus the “K9” and electric taxis the “E6,” it has been knocking on the doors of the public transportation sector abroad.
