Genoa transport operator to purchase 14 Irizar electric buses

Transport operator ATM Genoa has acquired 14 Irizar ie 10.8-meter electric buses. Each bus has 350 kWh of battery capacity, 220 km of range, three doors, 20 seats, and a capacity of 81 passengers. A 180 kW motor provides 1,500 Nm of torque.

The buses will be charged overnight via nine interoperable chargers with Combo 2 connectors, also developed and manufactured by the Irizar Group.

Delivery is scheduled for August 2020.

Hector Olabegogeaskoetxea, Managing Director of E-Mobility at Irizar, said, “Genoa is a city with very narrow, inclined streets, which implies a need for a stringent operational set-up from an orographic [sic] standpoint, a challenge which we will most certainly overcome with the reliability of our products.”
