Iveco Bus has won another contract in Italy, this time for 411 E-Way buses for operator ATAC Rome. The order will give Rome’s public transport company the largest fleet of Iveco electric buses in the country. The delivery of the first batch of 110 e-buses is expected to start in the last quarter of 2024, with all buses delivered by April 2026.
Giorgio Zino, Head of Iveco Bus Europe Commercial Operations said: “We are extremely proud that ATAC Rome have placed their trust in us with this impressive order. Our E-Way buses benefit from state-of-the-art solutions to provide drivers and passengers with a comfortable and emission-free journey. This new success in Italy confirms that our E-Way solution perfectly meets the decarbonisation expectations of Italian public transport.”
The order includes both 12m and 18m long vehicles, which will be equipped with NMC battery technology with a single-unit capacity of 69.3kWh. The energy storage package is assembled at the new FPT Industrial battery plant in Turin. The vehicles, which feature the manufacturer’s latest ADAS devices, will be supported by Romana Diesel, Iveco’s local dealer covering the Lazio region and one of the manufacturer’s biggest official dealers in Europe.
