DAIMLER BUSES SELLS 500 CITY BUSES TO MOROCCO
Daimler Buses signed a large order for 500 Euro 6 city buses for Morocco. The customer is the Spanish bus company ALSA which is part of the British National Express Group and has been operating bus routes in Morocco since 1999. This major order comprises 420 Mercedes-Benz Conecto solo buses and 80 articulated Mercedes-Benz Conecto G buses.
The buses will be equipped in accordance with the Euro 6 emissions norm and will be used in the city traffic of Casablanca where they will serve to renew the present fleet there. 150 buses are purchased on behalf of the Authority “L’ECI Al Baida” of Casablanca. The supply of these Euro 6 city buses also brings Morocco up to speed in terms of the environmental friendliness of its public transport.
All buses are to be produced in the Daimler Buses Turkish plant and will be delivered successively until the end of 2020. This is the second major order Mercedes-Benz receives from Morocco. The first one was in 2019 for more than 100 Mercedes-Benz Conecto buses for the country's capital Rabat. Daimler Buses sees North-Africa is a growing market to be conquered for which it established Regional Centers in 2015.
