EMT Madrid: Trust in Irizar e-mobility and increase of its fleet by 30 more electric buses
The Municipal Transport Company of Madrid (EMT Madrid) remains firm in its commitment to electrify its bus fleet and has awarded Irizar e-mobility an order for another 30 electric buses for the fourth time. This latest order means that EMT Madrid will now have a total of 85 zero-emission Irizar buses in its fleet.
Once again, the model chosen is the 12-metre long Irizar ie bus, which has been running on Madrid’s roads since 2019; this version is a totally safe, easily accessible zero-emission bus, with proven range and efficiency and includes a wide range of customisable options.
The vehicles will be powered by Irizar batteries and have 2 doors, 28 passenger seats, 1 driver’s seat plus 2 wheelchair areas. Irizar e-mobility will also supply 30 interoperable ECI-100 chargers from Jema Energy (a company belonging to the Irizar Group) with a 100 kW smart charging system, capable of charging the vehicles in three hours using a Combo 2 charging socket. The inverted pantograph charging option is also available. The vehicles will also include a remote monitoring system developed by the company Datik, which belongs to the Irizar Group.
These buses will help fulfil the sustainability goals advocated by the city of Madrid, along with the enormous environmental and noise reduction benefits the buses will bring to the citizens of Madrid.
“EMT Madrid has become a global benchmark in electromobility and we are very proud to be able to contribute to the city’s sustainability policy by adding thirty new vehicles to its fleet,” stated Imanol Rego, General Manager of Irizar e-mobility.
