Irizar e-mobility has launched into the international market with the delivery of 32 Irizar ie tram electric buses for the state of Yucatán, Mexico.

The first of these vehicles entered service on the Va-y-Ven public transport system on 30 December, enabling the route to become fully electric.

They are operated by MOBILITY ADO and connect the Tren Maya terminal, Umán, Kanasín, the UADY engineering school and Teya with the Plancha park in Mérida.

General Director of Irizar e-mobility, Iñigo Etxeberria said:

At the Irizar Group we’re going to make the most of the convergence of business channels already established in Mexico to give our full support to this project and thus become leaders in Latin America. It’s a very important project for us, because it’s the first time implementing our electromobility solutions beyond the European market.

The Irizar ie tram electric buses are each 12 metres long with three doors, 33 seats and a wheelchair area. They have the capacity to transport up to 80 passengers.

The new buses can be recharged using inverted pantograph opportunity charging or depot charging using Combo 2 outlets.
