Irizar e-mobility starts the year with two new awards. Beyond the Ecological Industrial Vehicle of the Year 2021 won by the waste collection truck Irizar ie truck, the new generation of the 12-metre Irizar ie bus has earned the Bus of the Year 2021 award in Spain. Ten units were recently delivered in Strasbourg, 14 in Genoa (the latter in 10.8m version).

This is the third time that the Grupo Editec (the publisher of the magazines Viajeros and Transporte) and the jury, representing urban transport operators, have awarded this prize to Irizar e-mobility vehicles.  In 2015, i2e, as it was known at that time, obtained this recognition and three years later, in 2018, the Irizar ie tram won the award.

“To start the year by winning these two awards fills us with pride and satisfaction”, says Imanol Rego, General Manager of Irizar e-mobility. “This recognition is the result of the commitment we have made in recent years to technology, innovation and sustainability in all kinds of applications.”

This bus model has been operating since 2014 in different European cities such as Madrid, London, Marseille, Genoa and Luxembourg, among others. The experience and data obtained in recent years demonstrate the reliability and safety of this vehicle.

The new Irizar ie bus can have up to five interoperable slow charging point positions using a combo 2 connector. Slow charging the vehicle takes 3 hours.  There is also the option of fast charging via pantograph. The charging capacity can vary from 50 kW to 600 kW. The new generation of the Irizar ie bus can be certified in Class 2.
