Based on the total volume of this order, the reduction is around 15 mio kg CO₂ per year an over the contract phase 180 mio kg reduction of CO₂.With this new fleet of Electrical Ebusco buses, Transdev is contributing massively to the objectives to reduce emissions.

Ebusco is extremely proud to be able to be a partner of Transdev and to contribute to the improvements of air quality. The electrical busses of Ebusco do not have any emissions like NOx, CO2 or particulate matters. Transdev has selected Ebusco given the long range of Ebusco busses without having to charge. This reduces the total cost of operations due to loading infrastructure and the reduction of the number of times one has to charge a bus, massively.

“We are applying the latest technology and innovations in our buses like weight reduction, battery technology, heating or charging infrastructure”. According to Peter Bijvelds, CEO Ebusco

The LFP technology in the Ebusco buses is the best and most safe battery technology in the industry. Because of the combinations of technologies, the Ebusco bus is able to drive 350 km’s in ideal circumstances on one charge.
