Ebusco has received a 130 million Euro order from Transdev Netherlands to supply 156 electric buses on its home market. These will be deployed in the Amsterdam area from November 2020.
The new electric bus fleet will start operating under the Transdev Netherlands Connexxion brand and will operate in the Amsterdam region, around Schiphol Airport and downtown Haarlem. The Ebusco models will replace the conventional diesel and gas buses previously used there.
The new low-floor electric bus fleet will start operating under the Transdev Netherlands brand: Connexxion and will operate in the Amsterdam region, around Schiphol Airport (and downtown Haarlem). The Ebusco models replace the conventional diesel and gas buses previously used there.
“We are applying the latest technologies and innovations in our buses like weight reduction, battery technology, heating/cooling systems and the newest charging infrastructure,” says Ebusco CEO Peter Bijvelds. We use lithium-iron-phosphate batteries (“LFP technology”) in our buses. The combination of both – the rechargeable batteries and the innovative technologies – enables the bus to cover a range of up to 350 kilometres.
The order for 156 electric buses (Haarlem IJmond ánd AML concession combined) is the largest fleet ever delivered to new electric buses in Europe within a year. “This is an enormous challenge that we are tackling with both hands,” says Bijvelds. In December 2019 Ebusco delivered already 60 electric Ebusco 2.2 buses in the Dutch provinces of Groningen and Drenthe.
