The shift to electric-drive city buses seems to be increasingly gaining momentum with European cities in particular seeing positives in making a switch from diesel-powered buses.

And, as we’ve covered previously, electric-power for city buses is ideal – there’s plenty of space for hefty battery packs and most buses don’t cover large distances in total each day.

The Iveco-owned European bus brand, HEULIEZ BUS, has just received its first major order for its new range of electric city buses – the GX 437 ELEC.
