Ebusco 3.0
Ebusco signs contract with Verkehrsbetriebe St. Gallen introducing the Ebusco 3.0 to the mountainous landscape of Switzerland

Ebusco (Euronext: EBUS), a pioneer and frontrunner in the development of electric buses, charging systems, and energy storage has signed a contract with VBSG – Verkehrsbetriebe St. Gallen. This order consists of 12 Ebusco 3.0 12-metre buses which will be deployed in St. Gallen beginning 2025.

The 12 Ebusco 3.0 12-metre buses will feature a low floor, three doors and will be powered by a battery pack of over 350 kWh. With these configurations, the buses are well equipped to cover the estimated 60,000 kilometres a year through the mountainous scenery of St. Gallen.

The Ebusco 3.0 to enter new territory

The Ebusco 3.0 is exceeding boundaries, both literally and figuratively. With this new order, the Ebusco 3.0 will again enter a new country. In the next years, the Ebusco 3.0 is expected to be on the road in: Sweden, Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France and now Switzerland. Nevertheless, this will mark the first time the Ebusco 3.0 will be deployed in mountainous terrain. The characteristics of the Ebusco 3.0, such as its exceptional energy-efficiency and manoeuvrability, make this bus highly suitable for steep landscapes and therefore the perfect choice for VBSG.

Cleanest air in the world

Switzerland has long held clean air in high regard, and it comes to no surprise that the cleanest air in the world can be found in this country. As per the Paris Agreement, Switzerland developed a long-term climate strategy, targeting net zero emissions for 2050. Aligned with its country’s strategy, VBSG has set the same goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050, and is currently in the process of converting its entire fleet to an electric driveline. With this order, Ebusco and VBSG are together contributing to meeting both regional and national targets.

Dr. Ralf Eigenmann, CEO at VBSG, comments: “With this new order, we take another significant stride towards our goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050. We eagerly anticipate our partnership with Ebusco, firmly believing that the Ebusco 3.0 represents the optimal choice for delivering clean and sustainable transport throughout our region. We are confident that this partnership will not only benefit our community but also contribute to a greener, more environmentally friendly future.”

Patrick Oosterveld, Sales Director of Ebusco, comments: “For the Ebusco 3.0 there is no mountain high enough to climb. St. Gallen features stunning scenery, and we’re privileged to add to its beauty with our bus. We are very confident that the Ebusco 3.0 will once again excel in performance and provide St. Gallen with sustainable and reliable transportation for many years to come.”
