0

HEULIEZ, the urban bus brand of Iveco Group, has been selected by Régie des Transports Métropolitains (RTM, the public transport operator of Marseille, France) to supply 200 electric buses. This contract is valued at 125 million euros.

The order marks a major step forward in the large-scale electrification of Marseille’s public transport network. It will lead to over a third of the RTM fleet becoming 100% electric by 2027, contributing substantially to the city’s energy transition goals.

The new generation GX 337 ELEC HEULIEZ buses chosen by RTM will be equipped with roof rails that enable them to be recharged via a descending pantograph, either at the depot or rapidly during service, offering a flexible and efficient solution for the city’s public transport needs. An initial delivery of 35 units is anticipated by the end of 2024, with the remaining vehicles scheduled to be supplied by 2027.

“We are really proud that Marseille has chosen us as a partner in its ambitious electrification project, and we look forward to supporting the city as it transitions toward a more sustainable future,” says Domenico Nucera, president, Bus Business Unit, Iveco Group. “This sizable contract underscores the effectiveness of our electric mobility solutions in meeting the decarbonization needs of public transport operators all over Europe.”
