Karsan wins tender for 13 CNG buses in Bulgaria

Karsan has won a city bus tender in Bulgaria to deliver 13 12m-long CNG-powered Citymood buses for the city of Pernik. Karsan’s Citymoods will replace ageing CNG-powered buses in the city. 

“We are happy to have won the tender with our 13 units of 12-metre CNG-powered Citymood buses in the Bulgarian market, where we had already put our foot in the door with our Jest and Atak vehicles,” says Muzaffer Arpacıoğlu, deputy general director, Karsan. “Thanks to the strong relationships we have established with our dealers despite the pandemic and our strict monitoring of the target markets, we steadily continue to receive orders from various cities in Europe and win public transportation tenders.”

The CNG-powered Citymood has a 7.8l FPT CURSOR 8 Turbo CAS Intercooler CNG-powered engine which produces up to 243kW and a maximum torque of 1,300 Nm.
