Iveco Bus will supply 153 electric buses to Atm Milan. The manufacturer has in fact won the 12-metre lot in the €120 million tender launched by Milan’s public transport company, on the strength of an industrial plan to electrify the entire fleet of 1,200 buses by 2030. By 2026, half the fleet will be zero-emission.

We had anticipated the news of the award at the beginning of August. Today the official announcement has arrived, ratified by an Iveco Bus press release.

The Milan award crowns a year that has seen Iveco Bus win important battery-powered tenders, GTT Torino above all.

Iveco, electric buses for Atm Milan

The contract for the new buses includes 153 new 12-metre electric buses and their full service maintenance for ten years. The first deliveries are scheduled by the first quarter of 2025, and all remaining buses will be delivered by June 2026.

Iveco Bus has put its seal on an important tender that allows it to break the monopoly hitherto held by Solaris on the ‘electric’ chapter (Solaris, in any case, won the 18-metre lot….). The Turin-based company points out that today vehicles with the Iveco Bus logo make up 45 per cent of the ATM fleet (550 buses out of 1,200).

Domenico Nucera, President, Bus Business Unit, Iveco Group, commented: “We are proud to play an important role in Milan’s journey towards more sustainable mobility. The competitive total cost of ownership offering of IVECO BUS, combined with our close proximity to ATM, allows us to provide a tailored solution that meets the specific needs of this fast-paced city.”
