Iveco Bus has signed a three-year framework agreement to supply up to 150 E-Way electric city buses to Busitalia, the Italian state rail operator’s bus company that mainly operates local public transport services, directly and through subsidiaries. Busitalia is owned by Italian state rail operator FS Group. The agreement represents the largest order for Iveco’s E-Way buses in Italy to date.

The vehicles will be delivered between 2023 and 2025, with the first 18 arriving in the cities of Padua and Rovigo in July 2023. Iveco has already produced some 800 E-Ways that have completed 42,000,000km between them. The 12-metre night-charging version for Busitalia will be fitted with air conditioning, USB sockets and a rear-view vision system.

“This agreement confirms our position as a leader in full electric mobility solutions and proves that we are the ideal partner for transport operators in providing emission-free mobility services. We are proud to support Busitalia in making public transport in Italy even more sustainable,” said Domenico Nucera, President of Iveco’s Bus Business Unit.
