The latest version of the Tecnobús Gulliver

SPAIN: Madrid’s municipal transport company EMT has put out a €35m tender for the purchase of 50 electric buses.

The winning bidder must deliver all vehicles between September 1 and December 18 of this year.

Describing the contract as ‘a firm bet on electric transport as a sustainable mobility strategy’, EMT says the tender is the largest bus-related procurement in Madrid’s history, and the buses will augment the current 18-strong fleet of 12 m Tecnobús Gulliver electric buses.

Currently, 1 049 of the fleet’s 1 900 buses are diesel-fueled.
