France: Ebusco to Supply 76 Ebusco 3.0 Electric Buses to Rouen

Métropole Rouen Normandie has confirmed the option to order 76 Ebusco 3.0 18-metre electric buses to operate on Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) routes in Rouen, France.

28 of these units will be delivered by the end of 2023, while the remaining 48 buses will be delivered in 2024 and 2025.

The long range combined with the superior drivability due to the batteries being integrated in the floor, led Rouen to choose Ebusco

This order is part of a contract signed in February 2022 in which Métropole Rouen Normandie initially ordered four Ebusco 2.2 buses.

The contract contained three additional options, all of which Métropole Rouen Normandie has now exercised by purchasing 76 Ebusco 3.0 buses.

Peter Bijvelds, CEO at Ebusco said:

“We are delighted with Rouen’s confidence to convert the option into a firm final order. We will continue the path initiated by bringing our innovations to the region and the whole of France as the biggest bus market in Europe. Ebusco and Metropole Rouen Normandie continue to join forces to demonstrate the benefits of an all-electric transport network in France.”

The electric buses will have large battery pack and a lightweight design to ensure low energy consumption and offer an extra-long range on Rouen’s BRT routes.
