Irizar e-mobility will manufacture 49 zero-emission 100% electric buses for the public transport network of the Strasbourg Eurometropole
Aduna, 1 October 2020
Irizar e-mobility is continuing to expand its electromobility solutions in France. This time it is the Strasbourg Eurometropole that is trusting Irizar to implement fully sustainable transport in their city.
The order placed by the CTS (Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois) includes 49 100% electric zero-emission 12-m Irizar ie new generation buses. These environmentally friendly buses will contribute to the electrification of the Strasbourg bus network.
The vehicles will have 3 doors, 23 seats (4 of which are for people with reduced mobility) and 2 areas for wheelchairs. The buses are charged overnight by trickle charging. They are accessed by an electric ramp which enables wheelchair users to enter the bus. They will have an AVAS (Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System) that complies with the R138 standard. Among other features, a protective door for the conductor has been installed.
The batteries installed in the vehicles are developed and manufactured at Irizar e-mobility. The electronics and communications and their main components and systems are also developed by the Irizar Group.
The first vehicles are expected to be delivered by the end of this year.
The after-sales service will be managed by locally contracted technical experts and personnel, thus contributing to the generation of local wealth and employment.
Irizar´s zero emission electric vehicles are used in cities such as Amiens, Bayonne, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille and Le Havre; soon they will also be moving through the streets of Orleans.
With this new contract, Irizar e-mobility is consolidating its leadership in the demanding French market in battery-operated electric vehicles and is continuing with its firm strategic brand commitment and bespoke projects in France.
