The 12-m IVECO BUS E-WAY delivered a new performance in real operating conditions, demonstrating all the benefits of zero-emissions transport as well as the outstanding reliability and excellent performance offered by this full electric model. 543km on one charge in real operations.
Carried out on the initiative of the company Verkerhrsbetriebe Bachstein last July, this test took place over two days, from 5.30 am to 4 pm. The 12-m E-WAY, equipped with a 335-kWh battery pack, finally run 543 kilometers without any problems. Certified by TÜV Nord, the record confirms IVECO BUS’s supremacy in the field of electric mobility. With 3% residual load at the end of the test, the IVECO BUS E-WAY could have gone even further, thanks to its low consumption: 0.61 kWh / km.
“We had already completed a first test on our test track running already 527 kilometres on a single charge. We are delighted with this new record performed this time by a customer in real operating conditions. It proves the ability of the IVECO BUS E-WAY to go even further,” explained Stéphane Espinasse, IVECO BUS Brand Leader.
“I didn’t believe it, but now I’m proud to have performed this feat on urban and suburban routes in the Braunschweig region in school missions,” added Malte Seek, the E-WAY driver.
For Jan Behrendt, CEO of Verkerhrsbetriebe Bachstein, this is a real challenge for drivers: “They are the ones who hold the wheel and manage the entire vehicle. Thanks to on-board telematics, they know at all times what they can and cannot do. For me, this record foresees well the future of electro mobility.”
The IVECO BUS E-WAY is the most complete range on the market, offering a solution to match the specific needs of every customer with a wide choice of lengths (9.5, 12 and 18 metres) and charging modes (slow overnight charging, or fast charging with or without pantograph). It also offers a supremely comfortable experience for drivers and passengers with a smooth ride and acceleration.
This range incorporates over 20 years of development and manufacturing expertise acquired by brand in alternative energies and particularly in electric mobility.
