IVECO BUS, a brand of Iveco Group N.V., has signed a three-year framework agreement to supply up to 150 E-WAY full-electric city buses to Busitalia, the FS Italiane Group’s bus company that mainly operates local public transport services, directly and through subsidiaries. It will represent the largest order for E-WAY city buses in Italy to date.
The vehicles will be delivered between 2023 and 2025, with the first 18 units arriving in the cities of Padua and Rovigo in July. The 12-meter night-charging version for Busitalia will be fitted with air conditioning, USB plugs, dedicated areas for wheelchair users and a rear-view vision system.
“This agreement confirms our position as a leader in full electric mobility solutions and proves that we are the ideal partner for transport operators in providing emission-free mobility services. We are proud to support Busitalia in making public transport in Italy even more sustainable,” says Domenico Nucera, president of Iveco Group’s Bus Business Unit.
