Irizar e-mobility began the new  year with an award – the new generation 12 metre Irizar ie bus has been honoured Bus of the Year 2021 in Spain.

This is the third time that the Grup Editec (the publisher of the magazines Viajeros and Transporte 3) and the jury representing urban transport operators, have awarded this prize to Irizar e-mobility vehicles. In 2015, i2e, as it was known at that time, obtained this recognition and three years later, in 2018, the Irizar ie tram won the award.

“To start the year by winning these this award fills us with pride and satisfaction,” said a delighted Imanol Rego, General Manager of Irizar e-mobility. “This recognition is the result of the commitment we have made in recent years to technology, innovation and sustainability in all kinds of applications.”

This bus model has been operating since 2014 in different European cities such as Madrid, London, Marseille, Genoa and Luxembourg, among others. The experience and data obtained in recent years demonstrate the reliability and safety of this vehicle.

The new generation of the 12 metre Irizar ie bus was presented for the first time at the Busworld 2019 trade fair. A 100% electric, zero emissions bus that offers a sustainable and eco-efficient urban mobility solution to respond to the current and future needs of city transport.

In addition to its attractive aesthetic design, this new generation, available in 10, 12, 15 and 18 metre versions, incorporates innovations and new batteries. The space has been optimised thus offering greater consumption and greater vehicle range.

The new Irizar ie bus can have up to five interoperable slow charging point positions using a combo 2 connector. Slow charging the vehicle takes 3 hours. There is also the option of fast charging via pantograph. The charge capacity can vary from 50kW to 600kW. The new generation of the Irizar ie bus can be certified in Class 2.
