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.
