Irizar e-mobility will provide 12 electric ie tram buses to Palma with the delivery of the first units in early 2023. The vehicles will have solar panels on the roof to power auxiliary systems of the buses.
Txema Otero, Irizar e-mobility commercial director for Spain & Portugal, says: “This order is strategic for us because of the visibility Palma has in the tourism market. We’re extremely proud to be able to contribute to improving the quality of life of its residents.”
The Irizar ie tram vehicles will be 12 metres long and they will have three doors, 22 seats and a wheelchair area and they will be able to carry up to 70 passengers. They will have 430kWh Irizar batteries and can be charged using an inverted pantograph or a Combo 2 charging outlet. The drive unit will be a 206kW central motor.
The project received financing from the European Union NextGenerationEU, Recovery – Transformation and Resilience Plan funds through the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and the Urban Agenda.
