Bilbao, Spain adds 2 electric Irizar i2e buses

Posted on December 22, 2016

Spain’s city of Bilbao will have two new 100% electric Irizar i2e buses, which will be joining the Bilbobus fleet and operate on several lines.

The two new 40-foot long, 100% electric, zero emissions Irizar i2e buses have been designed with the aim of optimizing the use of energy, improving the performance of Bilbobus' city buses.

The totally silent, zero-emission vehicles achieve a range of over 124 miles and include sodium-nickel batteries that provide power to the electric motor, resulting in a nominal torque of 1500 Nm and 180 kW of power. The vehicle regenerates braking energy as electricity, increasing battery life.

In addition to having all the comfort, accessibility, and safety features demanded by Bilbobus, they are equipped with USB chargers, as well as all the systems for optimal fleet management.

In addition, Irizar has supplied the charging stations and the smart charging system for the buses, developed by JEMA (an Irizar Group company), which automatically manages and optimizes electricity consumption.
