IVECO BUS will supply 120 low-floor plug-in E-WAY to Autoguidovie Group over a three-year period.  The electric buses will operate in all the territories covered by the companies of the Autoguidovie Group and their purchase has been partially financed thanks to contributions from the NRRP (National Recovery and Resilience Plan), the Complementary Funds and the NSPSM (National Strategic Plan for Sustainable Mobility).


"Our Group continues its virtuous path towards zero-impact mobility. The purchase of electric buses, within a framework agreement worth about 65 million euros, represents the natural continuation of a path towards true environmental sustainability for a company, which already has one of the most modern and ecological fleets in Italy and which has always promoted public transport as a growth driver for the territories, for businesses and for people," said Stefano Rossi, Managing Director of Autoguidovie.  "In Autoguidovie's strategic plan, the customer is at the center. We are convinced, in fact, that zero-emission mobility is beneficial for the environment and for citizens and can help to encourage the use of public transport, encouraging the abandonment of private vehicles", concluded Rossi.


We are honored that IVECO BUS has been also selected by Autoguidovie Group for the realization of its zero-emission mobility project in Italy. Our full electric city buses offer a sustainable mobility solution, reliable and efficient, while meeting every expectation of the transport operators, the drivers, and the passengers as well as the residents.”, said Stéphane Espinasse, Head of Sales & Products, IVECO BUS. He added: “With this second Italian success, we are very excited to expand our E-WAY solution and support the public transport decarbonization in the country”.

Thanks to IVECO BUS's twenty years of expertise in terms of development and production in the field of alternative energies, the E-WAY guarantees an excellent ratio between range and passenger transport capacity, having the necessary power for a whole day of operation.
