Bus manufacturer, Karsan has been selected to deliver 27 e-ATAK electric buses to Start Romagna, which provides bus services throughout Romagna, Italy.

The 27 ordered vehicles will be deliverd in 2023 and will be the first electric buses operated by Start Romagna.

Karsan’s CEO Okan Baş said:

“With this order, it seems that e-ATAK will be the leader of electric midibus segment in Italy in 2023 as well. Italy has a quite significant role in the transformation of electric public transportation in Europe. And Karsan is one of the forerunner brands of this transformation.

“With the new order for Start Romagna following the Consip and TPER 18-meter e-ATA orders we had previously received, Karsan's electric vehicle park in Italy next year will exceed 150 in total. Thus, we will be one of the most powerful brands in this market.”
