14 February 2024

The French subsidiary of Iveco Bus, Heuliez, is selected by Régie des Transports Métropolitains (RTM), the public transport operator of Marseille, to supply 200 electric buses. The contract is worth 125 million euros. This significant order will lead to over a third of the RTM fleet becoming 100% electric by 2027, contributing substantially to the city's energy transition goals.

The new generation Heuliez GX 337 Elec buses chosen by RTM will be equipped with roof rails that enable them to be recharged via a descending pantograph, either at the depot or rapidly during service. An initial delivery of 35 units is anticipated by the end of 2024, with the remaining vehicles scheduled to be supplied by

2027. Domenico Nucera, President, Bus Business Unit, Iveco Group, states in the press release: “We are really proud that Marseille has chosen us as a partner in its ambitious electrification project, and we look forward to supporting the city as it transitions towards a more sustainable future.”
