Germany: Ebusco Receives Follow-Up Order from SWEG

Ebusco, which manufactures electric buses and charging systems, has signed a contract with Südwestdeutsche Landesverkehrs-GmbH (SWEG) for up to 25 12m Ebusco 2.2 buses.

SWEG operates public transport services in southwest Germany. Together with its subsidiaries it oversees a fleet of around 470 buses.

SWEG has placed an order for up to 25 additional 12m Ebusco 2.2 electric buses

The buses in this order are to be deployed in the Baden-Württemberg region. They are expected to travel around 60,000km annually, saving in the region of 55,000kg of carbon dioxide and 90,000g of nitrogen per bus per year compared to a conventional ICE bus.

SWEG already operates Ebusco buses. The operator ordered 10 of these 12m Ebusco 2.2 buses last year. Each one of these low-floor buses has two doors and an extended battery pack of >400kWh.

Ebusco 2.2 buses are also in operation in other German cities such as Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt. They are fitted with LFP (lithium iron phosphate) batteries and depending on the capacity ordered, they have a range of up to 450km. Indeed, Dr Thilo Grabe, SWEG’s MD, said that one of the reasons the operator opted for more Ebusco 2.2 buses was the vehicle range.

Wolfgang Hackauf, Sales Director at Ebusco, said:

“We are very proud that SWEG has once again chosen Ebusco. The Ebusco 2.2 is a hugely reliable and energy-efficient bus, making it a good choice. We, therefore, look forward to continuing our co-operation with SWEG and continuing our journey towards zero emissions together.”
