Articulated Irizar ie bus for Frankfurt

February 2020

Irizar e-mobility is set to provide nine 18-metre emission-free electric buses to In-de-City-Bus GmbH (ICB) Frankfurt (Germany), in addition to nine interoperable slow charge stations for their garages.

With 560 kWh of stored energy and a range of 220 to 250 km, the latest generation of Iriziar ie buses are equipped with three doors, 46 seats and two spaces for wheelchairs or pushchairs. They charge overnight via nine interoperable chargers fitted with CCS Combo 2 adapters.

With this news, Irizar further grows its presence in Germany and, after completing an order for ten 12-metre zero-emission buses in Dusseldorf, it continues to provide its electromobility services in Frankfurt. It is worth remembering that it offers its sales and after-sales services for electric buses and charging infrastructures in the German, Austrian and Swiss markets through Ferrostaal Equipment Solutions.

The first units are expected to be delivered by the end of this year.

The Irizar Group continues with its strategy of positioning itself at the forefront of electromobility solutions for European cities and is committed to investing in alternative sources of energy and large-scale European projects in order to contribute to a future characterised by sustainable mobility.

We manufactures our own batteries and even provides them with a second life, allowing them to be reused once they have come to the end of their useful life cycle in buses, turning them into an energy storage device in electric vehicle recharging infrastructures in different service stations.

The municipal company ICB is the largest bus company in Frankfurt. It boasts a fleet of 162 latest-generation low-emission buses, transporting more than 31 million passengers each year. As the City of Frankfurt am Main is pursuing the goal of operating all bus traffic by 2030 with alternative drive types, the purchase of nine 18-metre emission-free electric buses is a big step towards low-emission urban transport.
