Kowloon Motor Bus took delivery of its first BYD K9A electric bus, or e-bus, in September 2012. It is believed to be the first of an order for ten. It was noted parked in Lai Chi Kok depot when I visited in November 2012.

On 14th January 2013 the bus was allocated fleet no. BE1 and registered RV8143.

On Monday 9th September 2013, an official ceremony was held at the Star Ferry Bus Terminus to mark the introduction of the first franchised
 battery-powered electric bus in Hong Kong. Later that same day the bus commenced operations on route 2 between Star Ferry and So Uk.
