Irizar e-mobility is set to expand its electric offerings in Madrid with the new delivery of zero-emissions vehicles in Fuenlabrada
Irizar e-mobility says it is still leading the domestic market and has added a new contract to supply seven 100 per cent electric zero-emissions buses to EMT Fuenlabrada to their portfolio of orders.
The Spanish operator based in Madrid chose the 12-metre long Irizar ie tram. It’s a vehicle with an avant-garde and innovative design similar to a tram that will change the look of public transport for the city of Fuenlabrada.
Irizar says it’s a vehicle that stands out, among other reasons, 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.
In terms of accessibility, it’s a low floor vehicle that has a ramp, priority spaces and seats for people with reduced mobility, sound and light emitting door buttons, and stops can be requested in Braille.
Irizar says it’s a completely safe bus that has video surveillance cameras and obstacle proximity radar, among other things.
The vehicles that will become part of the EMT Fuenlabrada fleet will have three doors, 26 seats and they will be able to carry 80 passengers.
They will have 430 kWh Irizar batteries and can be charged using an inverted pantograph or a Combo 2 charging outlet. The drive unit will be a 206kW central motor.
The ie trams will have enough range to provide service for 16 hours.
Irizar says without a doubt these sustainable and innovative vehicles will contribute to the decarbonisation project for public transport in Fuenlabrada.
