Irizar e-mobility has signed a new contract with EMT Madrid to supply 20 electric 12m Irizar ie buses. This is the third contract with EMT Madrid and it also includes the supply of 20 inter-operable chargers, developed and manufactured by the Irizar Group.

The vehicles have a range of 220km and have two doors, 28 seats and two wheelchair spaces. 

For charging, Irizar will supply 20 100kW chargers that will charge the vehicles overnight using a Combo 2 plug-in charging socket. 

With this latest 20-unit order, Madrid will have 55 zero emission Irizar brand buses. The first order that EMT Madrid placed with Irizar e-mobility was in 2017, for 15 Irizar i2e buses. These were put into operation in the capital at the beginning of 2018. In 2019, EMT purchased a further 20 units of the ie bus which were commissioned at the start of this year.
