Domenico Nucera will lead Board of Europe's bus and coach manufacturers - ACEA in 2024

The European Automobile Manufacturers' Association (ACEA) announced that Domenico Nucera, President, Bus Business Unit, Iveco Group, has been appointed as Chairperson of its bus and coach division. Domenico Nucera has been elected for a one-year term.

“The EU has set highly ambitious decarbonisation targets for buses and coaches in 2024. Yet, ambition on paper does not match the implementation reality, as Europe lacks equally ambitious enabling conditions," stated Domenico Nucera.

Bus and coach manufacturers are continuously working on cleaner and greener models to help cut road transport CO2 emissions but cannot tackle challenges alone. Public transport and coach operators need to be able to invest in and profitably operate new models. Collaboration with all stakeholders: policymakers, transport operators, electric charging and hydrogen refilling infrastructure providers, and others, is therefore key to rapidly decarbonising heavy-duty transport.

"Buses are the most popular means of public transport in the EU, accounting for well over half of all public transport journeys. They have the lowest carbon footprint of any form of motorised transport, simultaneously providing an essential public service while sizeably contributing to decarbonisation,” explained Domenico Nucera.

"More than 700,000 buses are on EU roads today, providing mobility for all Europeans. But policy makers should keep their focus on this vital sector's competitiveness in the face of growing competition from other global regions,” Domenico Nucera added.

ACEA's bus and coach division brings together the Europe's five main bus and coach manufacturers.
