Now it’s official: Ebusco has won an order for 90 buses for Berlin city. It is then confirmed the news reported on the German media Tagesspiegel a few days ago. The Dutch bus builder has signed a contract with Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe for 90 Ebusco 2.2 buses for the city of Berlin. This contract expands Ebusco’s presence in the strategically important German market. The delivery of the 90 Ebusco 2.2 buses to BVG is scheduled for 2022.

Recently the King of the Netherlands yesterday officially opened Ebusco new factory hall in Deurne by putting the Ebusco 3.0 bus on the charger (its debut in operation was scheduled in early 2022, but the manufacturer delivered last week first units in Munich). The factory in Deurne is expected to have a production capacity of five hundred emission-free buses per year by 2022, Ebusco says. The company just went public listing at Euronext Amsterdam.
