The Municipal Transport Company of Madrid (EMT Madrid) has ordered 30 electric buses from Spanish OEM Irizar e-mobility. This is the agency’s fourth order from Irizar, and will bring the number of zero-emission Irizar buses in its fleet to 85.
The 12-meter Irizar ie electric bus has been running on Madrid’s roads since 2019. It’s powered by Irizar’s own battery packs. Irizar will also supply 30 interoperable ECI-100 chargers from Jema Energy (a company belonging to the Irizar Group), which feature a 100 kW smart charging system, and can charge the e-bus in three hours using a Combo 2 charging socket. An inverted pantograph charging option is also available.
The vehicles will include a remote monitoring system developed by Datik, another company of the Irizar Group.
“EMT Madrid has become a global benchmark in electromobility and we are very proud to be able to contribute to the city’s sustainability policy by adding thirty new vehicles to its fleet,” said Imanol Rego, General Manager of Irizar e-mobility.
