France: Ebusco to Start Production at Facility in Rouen

Ebusco has signed a letter of intent to lease a production facility in the Metropole Rouen as part of the manufacturer’s expansion into France and Southwest Europe.

The 21,000 square-metre Renault Cléon site will be home to Ebusco’s French production facility and headquarters.

The location became available through the Cléon site’s transition to focussing on 100 percent electric vehicles. Ebusco will contribute to this ecosystem through its experience of electrifying public transport and integrating lightweight materials into its designs.

Peter Bijvelds, CEO of Ebusco, said:

“After the establishment of a development team in France two years ago, the installation of a second production site in Europe, as well as a new headquarters for our French subsidiary, is an important step for Ebusco in its development in France and Southern Europe.

“France represents the largest bus fleet in Europe and is therefore a strategic market for the development of Ebusco. With this new local production facility we aim to enhance our service to our existing French clients and gain further traction with new French mobility authorities.”

The new Ebusco facility is expected to be fully operational by the end of 2023 and will have an initial capacity of 500 buses per year.

Approximately 10 million EUR (8.5m GBP | 10.2m USD) is being invested to equip the facility and convert it to Ebusco standards.
