I guess these buses are operating as LEASE and not owned by TSRTC.
Had it been TSRTC then registration number would be TS08Z or TS09Z

Saw similar buses being tested by Delhi Govt's pilot project, near Kapashera border. The number was TS only.

BYD has set up the plant in Telangana and I believe that is the reason the Demo bus in Delhi may be having TS registration.

The bus is really super silent, the AC of the bus makes more noise.
So my neighbour was stating that this can be dangerous as people would not be aware that the bus is close to them and can cause trouble. Earlier Tata Marcopolo buses were used for Airport service and these buses did not require Horn to alert the people!
