Quantron AG, a clean tech company and specialist in sustainable passenger and freight transport, made a successful bid in a recent e-bus tender in Italy. From October 2023, six QUANTRON CIAZRIS 12 EV will be operational in Turin tasked to support the city’s public transport system. The new electric buses will be put into service on a newly opened bus route that will start operating in October this year. Their use will save around 409.2 tons of CO2 per year.
The customer is Miccolis, a public limited company based in Bari, which is active in local public transport network, school transport as well as the commercial sector. The company currently operates around 500 buses in different areas of Italy. For Miccolis, QUANTRON’s emission-free vehicles are an important step on the way to achieving a more sustainable and climate-neutral fleet.
The QUANTRON CIAZRIS 12 EV electric buses are equipped with powerful 363 kWh batteries that facilitate a reliable range of up to 370 km. The 12 metre-long bus offers sufficient space for up to 89 passengers.
“We are extremely proud to have won the e-bus tender in Italy,” said Alexander Stucke, Head of Sales Bus at Quantron AG. “With the QUANTRON CIAZRIS 12 EV electric buses, Miccolis will make a positive contribution regarding emission reduction in Turin.“
Fabrizio Simoni, Managing Director of Quantron Italy, added: “It is an honour to have Europe’s first CIZARIS vehicles operational in Turin, a city that is a symbol of transport and mobility“.
In addition, four fully electric minibuses were recently delivered to the municipalities on the island of Elba in order to decarbonise local transport operations. Quantron Italy, market leader in electric-powered minibuses and school buses, has converted these vehicles using the Quantron EV150 kit.
“We are very proud to make this beautiful island even more pristine,” said Fabrizio Simoni.
