Iveco wins two RATP green bus tenders
Iveco Bus has been awarded two of the four tenders issued by Paris public transport operator, RATP, for the supply of around 1,000 standard 12m hybrid electric and CNG citybuses. The vehicles will be supplied to RATP between 2014 and 2017. One of the other tenders has been awarded to Heuliez Bus which will be supplying around 1,000 hybrids.
Iveco Bus won the RATP tender thanks to its new Urbanway citybus, which is available as a full hybrid. The vehicle features an all new driver’s area developed according to the latest EBSF (European Bus System of the Future) guidelines. According to the manufacturer, the bus’s hybrid technology decreases CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by between 25% and 35%.
