It was yesterday’s news that Ebusco 3.0 deliveries will begin following mass production. And so the first Ebusco 3.0 will soon be on the road in the Netherlands in Transdev livery, but also in Germany for Niederrheinische Verkehrsbetriebe AG (NIAG), which is indeed ready to welcome 31 Ebusco 3.0s for the cities of Wesel and Kleve.

With a network of bus routes of more than 2,200 kilometers and 36.5 million passengers per year, NIAG is the largest provider of public bus transportation in the Lower Rhine region.

Specifically, these are 19 12-meter and 12 18-meter articulated vehicles: scheduled for delivery by the end of 2024. The 12-meter buses will be equipped with a battery pack of more than 350 kWh, while the 18-meter Ebusco 3.0 will be equipped with a pack of more than 500 kWh.

Hendrik Vonnegut, director of NIAG, commented: «In 2022 we ordered our first 12-meter Ebusco 3.0 buses, this next order of 31 buses is another important step toward electrification of the entire bus fleet».

Patrick Oosterveld, Sales Director at Ebusco, said: «We are pleased with the confidence expressed in this follow-up order from NIAG. Within this order, we are delivering both Ebusco 3.0 12-metre as well as Ebusco 3.0 18-metre buses. The Ebusco 3.0 18-metre bus was unveiled late last year and the combination of its high passenger capacity, extra-long range and extremely low energy consumption allows us to make an even greater impact for the benefit of the environment. The ambition to move to fully zero emission public transport as soon as possible is something we share with NIAG»
