Sweden: Svealandstrafiken Orders an Additional 13 Ebusco 3.0 Buses

Svealandstrafiken has contracted Ebusco to manufacture 13 18-metre Ebusco 3.0 buses, which will be delivered to Örebro Län, Sweden in the second half of 2023.

This is a follow-up order from Svealandstrafiken’s June 2022 order for 23 18-metre Ebusco 3.0 electric buses. It is also Ebusco’s third Swedish contract this year following a recent contract to supply 47 Ebusco 3.0 12-metre and 18-metre electric buses to Connect Bus for use in Växjö, Sweden.

Jonas Helsner, Sales Director Nordics at Ebusco said:

“At the end of October, we were present at the Persontrafik fair in Stockholm where we met with many operators and authorities from Sweden and other Nordic countries to present the lightweight and innovative Ebusco 3.0. Besides the bus’s fresh external looks and spacious internal design, the audience was also very pleased with the 3.0’s energy consumption figures, which we were able to show in our real-time fleet management system.

“It’s great to see that the positive feedback that we have received about our Ebusco 3.0 has strengthened our regional position and which is highlighted by the third order in Sweden.”

This recent contract with Svealandstrafiken also includes an option to purchase 5 additional 18-metre buses for delivery no later than the end of 2025.

The electric vehicles will produce zero tailpipe emissions in order to improve air quality in Örebro Län.

Martina Lindblom Alanko, Head of sustainability and procurement at Svealandstrafiken said:

“Sustainability is close to our hearts and a natural part of our business. Based on our values, we take active responsibility for our customers, employees, shareholders, suppliers, partners and, not least, for the society in which we operate. This is an important step for us in terms of reaching our strategic sustainability goals.”
