Ebusco expands in Sweden with up to 125 12-meter buses (50 ordered, 75 on option) in Stockholm

Delivery of the first 50 buses (model Ebusco 3.0) is scheduled for 2024 and the 75 buses are under option for delivery in 2025. Keolis Sverige has won the E42 tender in and around Stockholm (Bromma, Solna, Sundbyberg and Sollentuna).

Keolis orders Ebusco 3.0 buses for Stockholm

The Ebusco 3.0 12-metre buses ordered by Keolis will be equipped with a >350 kWh battery pack. In Sweden, Keolis’ operations include Stockholm, where nearly 800,000 people travel by public transport every day. Keolis is also active in Västra Götaland, Uppland, Värmland, Dalarna and Skåne. To keep these operations running, Keolis employs nearly 5,000 people.

Karl Orton, Fleet Director at Keolis comments: “Ebusco’s innovative bus fits perfectly with our ambition to reduce our climate and environmental footprint and the Ebusco 3.0 has proven to be the obvious choice on our road to zero emission.”

Jonas Helsner, Sales Director Nordics at Ebusco, comments: “It is exciting that we have secured a substantial order for such a large city like Stockholm. This is the first order for Keolis in Sweden, after we previously scored an order for the Nordics with Keolis in Denmark. Since not everything in Stockholm is within walking distance, a well-functioning public transport system is indispensable. We are delighted that we are expanding together with Keolis and our innovative Ebusco 3.0 can soon be seen in the Swedish capital city.”
