Hendrik Vonnegut, Director at NIAG, said:

“In 2022 we ordered our first 12 Ebusco 3.0 12-metre buses, this follow-up order of 31 buses is another important step towards electrification of the entire bus fleet.”

Delivery of the additional buses is scheduled for the end of 2024.

Alike to the previous order, the new 12-metre vehicles will be equipped with a >350kWh battery pack, while the Ebusco 3.0 18-metre models will be fitted with a >500kWh pack.

Patrick Oosterveld, Sales Director at Ebusco, said:

“We are pleased with the confidence expressed in this follow-up order from NIAG. Within this order, we are delivering both Ebusco 3.0 12-metre as well as Ebusco 3.0 18-metre buses.

“The Ebusco 3.0 18-metre bus was unveiled late last year and the combination of its high passenger capacity, extra-long range and extremely low energy consumption allows us to make an even greater impact for the benefit of the environment. The ambition to move to fully zero emission public transport as soon as possible is something we share with NIAG.”
