i6s Efficient wins sustainability award
The new Irizar i6S Efficient has been awarded the Sustainable Bus Award in the “coach“ category at an event held in Milan during the NME-Next Mobility Exhibition fair.
The jury, made up of several members of the specialised European press, highlighted Irizar’s capacity for redesigning the i6S model, “achieving greater operating efficiency, which is essential for a sector whose reactivation is being affected by the price burdens caused by the energy crisis.” A consumption reduction of 13%, the 30% improvement in the aerodynamic coefficient and the weight reduction of up to 950 kg make the i6S Efficient a new generation sustainable vehicle designed for maximum efficiency.
Imanol Rego, General Director of the Irizar Group, highlighted the importance of the prize, affirming that “it encourages us to keep going with technology and innovation and make the effort day in and day out to build a better world”. Rego also stressed that “Irizar’s commitment to sustainability runs deep and, as such, defines the DNA of our brand”.
The award is a recognition of the work done by the people at Irizar on what has been one of the largest innovation projects in recent years. It is a push towards our firm goal to tackle the new challenges we are facing today and make Irizar a key actor in the sustainable mobility of the future.
