Transdev Group takes ten more Caetano electric buses for Aveiro
Transdev Group has acquired 10 new e.City Gold electric buses from CaetanoBus, following an international tender. These units will be delivered in the first half of 2023 and join four already in operation in the city of Aveiro .
The buses will have a new battery which promises increased range which will avoid the need for intermediate charging throughout the day.
Nuno Lago de Carvalho, chief commercial officer, CaetanoBus, says: “We are happy to deserve the confidence of a prestigious operator like Transdev, to be able to contribute with 10 more zero-emission buses that will help to decarbonise another Portuguese city.”
In addition to the buses, the entire charging infrastructure will also be supplied, which will include five SICHARGE UC 100 chargers and 10 Siemens dispensers, also manufactured in Portugal. The project also includes Depot Finity charging management software, provided by Siemens.
