The Urbino 12 hydrogen buses will be delivered to France by 2025, where they will join electric and autonomous models already delivered to the region.

“We are deeply grateful and excited for this opportunity, and would like to thank Île-de-France Mobilités and the CATP for their confidence in us. Our commitment to the development of zero-emission technologies is unwavering, and this project provides an excellent platform to demonstrate our capabilities in the field of electric mobility.”
