Irizar i6S Efficient Hydrogen wins Spanish award
Irizar’s new i6S Efficient Hydrogen has won the 2024 Coach of the Year in Spain award.
The coach was launched at last year’s Busworld International Fair in Brussels. It is expected to have a range of up to 1,000km, be capable of refuelling in around 20 minutes and offer the capability to run in electric mode for short distances.
Imanol Rego, CEO of the Irizar Group, and Mikel Perez, the Irizar Commercial Director for Spain and Portugal, received the prize at the awards ceremony in Madrid.
“At Irizar we want to be a key actor in the mobility of the future” – Imanol Rego, CEO of the Irizar Group
Imanol said: “At Irizar we want to be a key actor in the mobility of the future. To achieve that, we’re focusing all our efforts on decarbonisation and reducing the consumption and emissions of our vehicles. We’re certain that the future will be multi-technological. And the Irizar i6S Efficient Hydrogen, alongside the rest of the range of technologies available for our buses and coaches, is proof of that.”
Mikel Pérez said: “It’s a pioneering project that puts Irizar back at the technological forefront on the path to the sustainable mobility of the future.”
