Île-de-France Mobilités (IDFM), the Parisian transport authority, together with transport operator, RATP (Régie Autonome des Transports Parisiens) have selected the 12m fully electric GX337 bus from Heuliez Bus for the city’s ambitious Bus2025 plan, which will see the entire fleet of diesel buses replaced by electric vehicles.
The order, worth €133m, was signed in May and is the largest fully electric bus order to date for Heuliez Bus, a brand of CNH Industrial.
The vehicles will be delivered over a period of two years starting in 2020.
The inclusion of Heuliez Bus in the largest European tender for electric buses to be launched thus far by RATP and financed by IDFM, reinforces the brand’s position at the forefront in this specialised field, says CNH Industrial.
Equipped with a synchronous electric motor and lithium-ion NMC battery system, the GX337 can run for a whole day on a single charge, with overnight recharging carried out at the depot.
Other features include a Combo 2 recharging socket, located at the rear of the vehicle to optimise the charging space in the depot, and energy storage units, positioned neatly in the roof and at the rear ensure up to 100 passengers, of which 30 seated, can be accommodated comfortably.
