Iveco wins order for 400 electric buses for public transport in Rome

Iveco Bus, the urban, intercity and tourist bus brand of the Iveco Group, has won its largest electric bus contract in Italy to date for the supply of 411 battery electric vehicles to ATAC SpA (Azienda per la mobilità), the public transport company of Italy’s capital city.

The contract is worth more than 300 million euros and is part of ATAC's strategic plan to offer increasingly sustainable, efficient and accessible mobility. The tender comprises not only the new electric buses, measuring either 12 or 18 metres in length, but also a 10-year full-service maintenance plan for each.

The first deliveries are expected by the end of 2024 and all the remaining buses are to be delivered by mid-2026.

Domenico Nucera, President, Bus Business Unit, Iveco Group, stated: “We are extremely proud to be a key contributor to Rome’s transition towards greener and more efficient mobility. Our increasingly strong offering in the field of electric passenger transport is being recognised across the entire Italian market, and internationally as well, confirming our position as a leading partner. Extending this to the capital of Italy, the ‘Eternal City’, is a fitting way to begin 2024, after closing a very satisfying year in terms of orders for Iveco Bus.”
