Irizar Wins First Electric Bus Order in Poland

Irizar e-mobility has signed a contract with Polish operator, Miejskie Przedsiebiorstwo Komunikacyjne (MPK) to supply four zero-exhaust-mission electric buses to Kraków, Poland.

MPK Kraków has selected the 12-metre Irizar ie bus to contribute towards the city’s decarbonisation goals. In addition to the four initial units, the contract also includes an option to provide three more buses.

This order will make Krakow the first Polish city to operate Irizar electric buses in their fleet.

Mikel Irizar, Commercial Manager for Eastern Europe at Irizar e-mobility said:

“It's the first time we're implementing our sustainable mobility solutions in a Polish city and it fills us with pride and satisfaction. We hope we can enrich the travel experience of Krakow residents with our electric buses and have a positive impact on their quality of life.”

The vehicles will be equipped with complete CCTV systems, passenger counters and blind-spot cameras.

They will be charged using a pantograph or an in-depot Combo 2 charging outlet. This infrastructure will be supplied by Jema Energy, an Irizar Group company.

Marek Gancarczyk, MPK Kraków Spokesperson said:

“We're very happy that next year passengers in Krakow will be travelling in new Irizar e-mobility electric buses. This will be the first electromobility project in Poland for this company. We're looking forward to good cooperation with Irizar e-mobility in the future.”

Prior to this contract, MPK Kraków has also previously ordered 114 electric Urbino vehicles from Solaris Bus & Coach, including 18 articulated buses earlier this month.
