13 EBUSCO BUSES TO FRANKFURT
After having received an order in 2019 for 156 Ebusco 2.2 electric buses from the Transdev Group in the Netherlands, Ebusco received an order for 13 of those buses by Transdev Germany. Ebusco will deliver the 13 electric buses at the end of 2020 to Alpina, a brand of Transdev Rhein-Main GmbH.
With those 13 Ebusco 2.2 Alpina is to replace the diesel buses currently running on the A and G line bundles. Frankfurt am Main is pursuing the goal of operating all bus traffic by 2030 with alternative drive types. According to Ebusco, Transdev has selected the Ebusco 2.2 because of the range of 350 kilometre the bus can reach on a single charge.These 13 buses will be the 12 meter Ebusco 2.2 buses in a low floor version and are equipped with LiFePO4 batteries.
At the end of this year already 40 Ebusco electric buses will be driving around in several cities in Germany and in 2021 more buses will find their way to Germany, amongst others in other big cities Munich and Bonn.
