The group Voyages Emilie Weber is acquiring 14 new 18 m Irizar ie bus 100% electric, zero-emissions buses, which are an addition to the seven 12 m Irizar ie bus units that are already fully operational in Luxembourg. They are the first 18 m articulated buses with 525 kWh to operate in night charging mode. This acquisition also includes repair and maintenance contracts.

The contract includes delivery and maintenance for fourteen Irizar ie bus 18 metre articulated zero-emissions electric buses, in addition to the charging infrastructure.
The Irizar ie bus incorporates Irizar Group technology for the electronics and communications as well as the main vehicle systems, including the power train, battery modules and charging systems.

They are charged at night using 14 interoperable chargers with Combo – CCS2 charging outlets, which are also designed and manufactured by the Irizar Group.
The first vehicles will be delivered after March 2019.
