IVECO BUS, a brand of Iveco Group N.V. (MI: IVG), has been awarded a public tender for the supply of 120 E-WAY full electric city buses for Autoguidovie Group, the largest Italian privately owned local public transport company.
The vehicles will be deployed in the various areas served by Autoguidovie, with deliveries beginning in the second half of 2023. The E-WAY bus is the result of IVECO BUS twenty years of experience in developing and producing alternative drive vehicles: it offers high comfort, with smooth, silent and vibration-free driving and acceleration, an excellent ratio between autonomy and passenger transport capacity, and the required power to ensure a full day of operation.
Domenico Nucera, President, Bus Business Unit, Iveco Group, said: “We are honored by the trust that customers throughout Europe are placing in our company and our vehicles. And we are glad to be contributing to the ongoing global evolution of public transport towards a zero-emission future. This win is further confirmation that our emission-free mobility solutions can satisfy the different demands of various customers in terms of sustainability, reliability and efficiency.”
Stefano Rossi, CEO of Autoguidovie, said: “Our Group is pursuing the virtuous path towards zero-impact mobility. The purchase of electric buses represents the natural continuation for a company that already has one of the most modern and environmentally friendly fleets in Italy and has always promoted public transport as a driver of growth for local communities, businesses and people in the country.”
IVECO BUS is the mass-transit and premium bus and coach brand of Iveco Group, a Company headquartered in Turin and listed on the Euronext Milan stock exchange. IVECO BUS is poised to produce low-to-zero emission buses in a new site soon to be inaugurated in Foggia, Italy.
