New German order for Ebusco, that has been commissioned 10 Ebusco 2.2 vehicles and 10 chargers from Südwestdeutsche Landesverkehrs-GmbH (SWEG). The buses will be operating in the Baden-Württemberg region. 

Ebusco just landed a new order in Munich. Stadtwerke München already has extensive experience with Ebusco buses. There are currently 12 Ebusco 2.2 12-metre buses in operation in the inner city of Munich, and two Ebusco 3.0 buses, which had their world debut in Munich.

Ebusco to deliver both buses and chargers

Südwestdeutsche Landesverkehrs-AG (SWEG) is a public transport company in south-west Germany. Together with its subsidiaries, it manages a fleet of 470 buses.

In this tender, SWEG deliberately chose to put the Low Floor electric buses and the accompanying infrastructure in the form of depot chargers together in one tender. «The combination of a competitive price, long guarantee and low maintenance costs were important reasons for choosing Ebusco», the Dutch bus builder says. The order comprises 10 Ebusco 2.2 buses of 12 metres and 10 Ebusco chargers of 100 kW.

Ebusco electric buses for SWEG

Peter Bijvelds, CEO Ebusco: “It is great to see that, yet another renowned German party has chosen us. SWEG chooses to contract both the electric buses and the charging infrastructure to one party and this is fully in line with our vision. By supplying both buses and charging infrastructure, we can better guarantee the high quality and performance, including high up-time, of our buses. We look forward to contributing to improved air quality in the Baden-Württemberg region with our zero emission buses.”

Thilo Grabo, Managing Director SWEG: “In our search for fully electric buses and the corresponding charging infrastructure, our choice finally fell on Ebusco. After a careful process, the Ebusco low-floor buses with a large battery pack, combined with the Ebusco charging infrastructure, turned out to be the ideal solution for us. With this investment, we are taking the next step towards making climate-friendly mobility the new standard.”
