Dutch manufacturer Ebusco has signed a contract with Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB) for 21 Ebusco 2.2 12-metre buses and related chargers, to be delivered in the second quarter of 2023, the company’s first foothold in the Southern European market. The order increases the number of countries where Ebusco vehicles are operating to nine.
Àrea Metropolitana de Barcelona (AMB) is the public administration of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, a large urban conurbation made up of 36 municipalities. It plans and operates bus and subway networks and other sustainable transport services. The 21 new Ebusco 2.2 buses will be used on metropolitan bus services.
Peter Bijvelds, CEO of Ebusco, commented: “We are very excited to expand our geographical presence with this very first order in Spain. It is one of the target markets in our international expansion strategy as the electric bus market in Spain is expected to grow considerably in the coming years. We are looking forward to supporting AMB in its transition to sustainable transport.”
