Two full electric buses from Rampini, 8-meter Eltron model, were delivered to the city of Marburg (Germany) last Tuesday, 11 July. A handover that follows the delivery in 2021 of two E80s, models that initiated the city’s decarbonisation strategy. It’s the second delivery for the new Rampini Eltron, launched last year and delivered in Portofino, Italy, in early July.

The Italian company has also won the tender launched by Consip, the Italian government’s centralized purchasing body, for the supply of 8-meter electric buses: up to 280 units will be provided.

The two new buses were handed over to Holger Armbrüster and Bernhard Müller, Managing Directors of Stadtwerke Marburg, at a press event.

Installed on the roof are lithium iron phosphate batteries from the world market leader CATL, with a capacity of up to 281 kWh. The new model is equipped with a centrally positioned synchronous motor with a peak power of 240 kW. The stated range is of 340 kilometres, with a turning radius of 14.8 metres, which is optimal for public transport services in city centres. In addition, the bus offers, for the first time, a camera system to replace the classic mirrors.

In 2021, the Marburg public transport company introduced two electric buses from Rampini for the first time.

Caterina Rampini, Vice-President and Managing Director of Rampini said: “We are honoured to be able to hand over a second batch of electric buses featuring new technology to the beautiful city of Marburg. The Eltron is an extremely compact and manoeuvrable bus and, in addition, is completely ‘Made in Europe’. We are proud that our buses form the basis for the progressive decarbonisation of the city of Marburg”.

“One of the strengths of these vehicles is their manoeuvrability, especially on the steep route to the castle on route 10. The manoeuvrability and driving experience have been rated positively by our drivers, while our passengers appreciate the high levels of comfort,” explained Wolfgang Otto, Managing Director of Marburger Verkehrsgesellschaft mbH (MVG).

“For Stadtwerke Marburg, this is another important step towards carbon-neutral transport by 2030,” explained Stadtwerke managing directors Holger Armbrüster and Bernhard Müller.
