IVECO BUS to supply 153 electric buses to ATM in Milan

IVECO BUS, the urban, intercity and tourist bus brand of Iveco Group N.V., has signed a contract to supply 153 new electric buses to Azienda Trasporti Milanesi S.p.A. (ATM), Milan‘s public transport company.

The E-WAY model selected by ATM is a night-time charging version equipped with the latest NMC battery technology whose single-unit capacity reaches 69.3 kWh and is industrialized in Italy by FPT Industrial.

The contract, worth more than €120 million, is part of ATM’s strategic plan to offer increasingly sustainable and accessible mobility. ATM is committed to converting its entire urban fleet to 1,200 electric buses and making necessary changes in the surrounding ecosystem, which include the renewal of depots and the creation of new facilities that will be fully integrated into the design of the city.

By 2026, half of the buses in service in Milan will be electric.

The tender for the new buses comprises 153 new 12-meter electric buses and their full-service maintenance for ten years. The first deliveries are expected by the first quarter of 2025 and all the remaining buses are to be delivered by June 2026.

Over the years, IVECO BUS has contributed to Milan’s mobility and today its vehicles constitute 45% of the entire ATM fleet (550 buses out of 1,200).
