Ebusco has signed a new contract with Swedish public transport operator Svealandstrafiken, for a total of up to 64 buses. The contract comprises 23 Ebusco 3.0 13.5-meter Class II buses, to be delivered in the second half of 2024, and an option to purchase 41 additional buses. With this order, Svealandstrafiken is Ebusco’s first customer ordering the 13.5-meter Class II variant.
It is the third order from Svealandstrafiken for Ebusco in the last nine months, further strengthening Ebusco’s position in the Nordics. Svealandstrafiken is a public transport operator responsible for the transportation of 65,000 passengers daily. After delivery the 23 Ebusco 3.0 buses will be operating in the Örebro area and are expected to drive up to 75,000 kilometres per bus per year.
In total, the new fleet will reduce Svealandstrafiken’s emissions with more than 1,500,000 kilograms of CO2 and over 2,500,000 kilograms of nitrogen a year. The Ebusco 3.0 has a lightweight body and floor-integrated batteries, ensuring a low centre of gravity. Furthermore, the 13.5-meter buses for Svealandstrafiken will be equipped with an electric climate control system.
