Irizar e-mobility lands contract for 18 articulated electric buses

Irizar e-mobility

Irizar e-mobility, the newly formed electromobility division of Basque coach builder the Irizar Group, has won a contract with a French transit authority to provide 18 of its i2e 18-meter articulated electric buses, together with charging infrastructure.

The Agglomeration of the Basque-Adour Coast in France plans to create two completely electric lines, featuring dedicated bus lanes, fast charging stations at the end of each line, and slower charging facilities at the depots. Engineering work will begin in 2017 and service will begin in April 2019.

The Irizar i2e features a TramBus design, and uses technology developed within the Irizar Group, including a motor system from Alconza, inverters from Jema, and an energy storage system developed by Irizar e-mobility.
