The Municipal Transport Company of Madrid (EMT Madrid) 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. The third order dates back to late 2020.

Once again, the model chosen is the 12-metre long Irizar ie bus, which has been running on Madrid’s roads since 2019.

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.

“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.
