Bilbobus adds first Irizar ie tram electric bus to its fleet 

A new Irizar ie tram has been delivered to Bilbao, adding to six electric buses already in the Bilbobus fleet. The new 12m-long Irizar ie tram has 43 seats and two wheelchair areas with capacity for up to 75 passengers. 

The bus is powered by 430kWh batteries supplied from within the Irizar Group, and charging will be carried out overnight at the depot.

“We’re extremely satisfied with having the vehicle in the city,” says Txema Otero, Irizar commercial manager for Spain.

“We think it’s a value-added proposition that brings a new concept of electromobility that unites the environmental benefits of more sustainable, efficient, intelligent, safe and connected urban public transport with the appeal of travelling in a vehicle that gives something to the city and produces an emotional impact that makes you want to take the bus.”
