Irizar e-mobility has received an order to supply seven 12-metre battery-electric ie Tram zero-emission buses to Madrid operator EMT Fuenlabrada. The manufacturer said it was chosen as the vehicle “stands out for its low noise level (below 70 dB with the air conditioning running), and its high capacity, easy access and the ample space for passengers inside. The passenger area of the bus is luminous, comfortable, spacious, pleasant and safe. It has USB ports for charging the batteries of passengers’ phones.”

The vehicles will have three doors, 26 seats and a capacity of 80 passengers. They will have 430kWh Irizar batteries and be able to be charged using an inverted pantograph or a Combo 2 charging outlet. They will be driven by a 206kW central motor and have enough range to provide service for 16 hours, Irizar said.
