CTS (Compagnie des Transports Strasbourgeois) has placed an order for 49 electric 12m Irizar ie buses for the Strasbourg bus network. The three-door vehicles will have 23 seats and two areas for wheelchairs.
The buses are charged overnight by trickle charging and the batteries installed in the vehicles are developed and manufactured at Irizar e-mobility. The electronics and communications and their main components and systems are also developed by the Irizar Group.
The first vehicles are expected to be delivered by the end of this year.
Aftersales support will be managed by locally contracted technical experts and personnel, to support local employment.
Irizar´s zero emission electric vehicles are already in use in European cities including Amiens, Bayonne, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille and Le Havre and will soon be operating in Orleans.
