The Irizar i4 is a versatile vehicle, an ideal coach for use in urban settings, for commuting, school transport, corporate or occasional functions. The different versions of this vehicle (H, M, L) strike a perfect balance between accessibility and luggage compartment capacity, according to the needs of each operator. The floors, which can be flat or lowered, and the unobstructed aisles, underline the concept of adaptability. The vehicle is available in lengths from 10.8 m to 15 m.

The new generation Irizar i4 coach, which was presented for the first time at the Busworld 2019 trade fair, now offers significant new features that mainly focus on a major reduction in weight and optimal per axle load distribution. This has resulted in a lighter vehicle, weighing up to 955 kg less, depending on the chosen configuration. This highly efficient, sustainable and profitable coach, with its structural redesign and incorporation of optimised and innovative technology solutions, will generate significant fuel savings of up to 5% and, therefore, improvements in CO2 emissions reductions. The implemented solutions include the use of high-strength steel and composite materials to replace traditional structural materials, as well as new seats, with weight optimisation and greater space between them, thus enhancing passenger comfort and experience.

A new length, on 2 axles, 63 seats

The innovations that have been introduced to the vehicle have made it possible to offer new seat layouts, providing versatility and maximum adaptation to the customer’s needs. The new Irizar i4 model range includes a new coach version, a 13.23 m vehicle on a 4 x 2 chassis, with a maximum capacity of 63 seat spaces (59 + 1 PRM), with up to 34 standing places and luggage compartment volume exceeding 6m3. The various door configurations, with single, wide single and double door options, enable lifts to be installed to facilitate access for persons with reduced mobility. Important safety measures include the option of a radar in the centre of the front. The Irizar front headlights with Full-LED option offer up to 30% more light capacity. The other lighting fixtures are also LED. This latest generation Irizar i4 is available with diesel, HVO and B100, hybrid and biogas or natural gas (CNG or LNG) propulsion systems, depending on whether it is an exclusively Irizar model or a combination of chassis and bodywork.

The Irizar i4 therefore offers a wide range of configuration options and advanced safety systems, plus excellent driver ergonomics and accessibility. It is a highly efficient, sustainable, profitable, reliable and versatile vehicle, which offers a comprehensive response to the demands of metropolitan and suburban service, school or corporate transport.
