Irizar has developed the first European electric bus, the Irizar i2e, which with just five hours of charging guarantees driving between 14 and 16 hours, in dense urban and interurban traffic conditions.

This new bus model, a benchmark for technology and sustainability, has begun to circulate through the streets of the city of San Sebastián, where its use is expected to reduce 88 tons of CO2 and save 33,000 liters of fuel per year. Barcelona hopes to start using it in September.

This new bus is great news if we take into account the problems currently faced in Europe, where an estimated 60% of the population lives in cities and eliminating pollution in urban environments is a great challenge.
