Gipuzkoa-based company Irizar has delivered two ‘zero emissions’ electric buses to Barcelona city within the European ZeEUS project, whose goal is to extend the clean energy electric solution to the core urban bus network in European cities.
The incorporation of these two Irizar i2e vehicles, developed entirely with the group’s own technology, into the Barcelona transport company TMB, marks the start of a lengthy testing period.
The bus delivery ceremony was accompanied by a technical seminar that took place in the Conference Hall of Caixa Forum in Barcelona. The agreement with TMB includes the transfer and purchase of these two units once the trial period ends.
The Irizar i2e, which is already operating on two municipal transport lines in San Sebastian, is the first urban bus developed entirely with proprietary technology
