Ebusco has signed a contract with Svealandstrafiken in Sweden for 23 18-meter Ebusco 3.0 buses, to be delivered in the second half of 2023. This is Ebusco’s first contract in Sweden, taking the number of countries with Ebusco buses on the road to eight.

The Dutch manufacturer was recently chosen as e-bus supplier by DB, in Germany (with the previous 2.2 model). In 2021 the King of the Netherlands yesterday officially opened Ebusco new factory hall in Deurne by putting the Ebusco 3.0 bus on the charger (the manufacturer delivered the first units in Munich). The factory in Deurne is expected to have a production capacity of 500 emission-free buses per year by 2022, Ebusco says. The company went public listing at Euronext Amsterdam. One of the largest contract achieved in 2021 was with BVG Berlin, in Germany.

Ebusco first order from Sweden

Svealandstrafiken, the Public Transport Operator owned by the Region Västmanland and Region Örebro Län, is responsible for the bus services with daily more than 65,000 passengers. Most of the bus services are under direct management of Svealandstrafiken while a minority is handled by transport subcontractors, Ebusco says in a press note.

Peter Bijvelds, CEO of Ebusco comments: “We are very excited to expand our footprint in the Scandics. Earlier this year we hired Jonas Helsner as our dedicated Sales Director in the Nordics. This order in Sweden is a perfect next step within our expansion strategy. We are looking forward to serve our new customer in a new country directly with our revolutionary Ebusco 3.0 and are looking forward to further support the expected growth of zero emission buses and associated EV solutions in Sweden.”
