Iveco & Solaris confirm zero-emission bus orders from Milan

Iveco Bus says it has received a significant order for over a hundred ZEBs from Milan's public transport operator ATM. Specifically, the company has commissioned Iveco to supply 153 electric buses and provide maintenance over ten years.

The vehicles are due to arrive in Milan successively between early 2025 and June 2026. The contract is worth more than 120 million euros and likely builds on an earlier tender in which Iveco was the winning bidder alongside Solaris.

ATM is converting its entire urban fleet to 1,200 electric buses, including renewing depots and creating new facilities that will be fully integrated into the city’s design.

The arrival of the new Iveco buses represents a “crucial step in ATM’s Full Electric plan,” write the partners. By 2026, half of the buses in service in Milan will be electric.

To this end, ATM tendered 340 battery buses in three lots in the autumn of 2022. In August 2023, Italian media reported that Iveco Bus and Solaris had won the tender.

Update 21 December 2023

Following Iveco’s confirmation, Solaris also announces an order from Milan. ATM confirms the purchase of 105 Urbino electric buses in the 18-metre articulated version and 700 kWh batteries. Deliveries are scheduled for the first half of 2025.

Solaris adds that ATM Milano has become one of the largest recipients of zero-emission buses by the Polish brand. Interestingly, since 2018, ATM has ordered nothing but ZEB from Solaris.

The order appears in line with the initial tender Iveco and Solaris won, as mentioned above.,
