Ikarus 120e

Ikarus wins electric bus tender in Poland

07 September 2023

Electrobus Europe, distributor of Ikarus buses, and Szczecinek City Council signed a contract for the order of electric buses. Electrobus will deliver five built in Hungary, fully-electric Ikarus 120e buses to the city within 11 months. For Ikarus, this is the first order from Poland – once a key export market and still regarded as a strategic target country by the Hungarian bus manufacturer. The Ikarus 120e is already running in Hungary and Germany.

Szczecinek is situated in north-western Poland and offers free public transport for everyone in the city. As a result, the number of public transport users has practically doubled. In addition, the city is expanding its existing fleet of 10 electric buses with the Ikarus zero-emission buses, which, when delivered, will take the oldest internal combustion vehicles off the streets of Szczecinek. The 12-metre-long, fully low-floor electric Ikarus buses, with a total capacity of 86 passengers, will be delivered in a 3-door version with

27+2 passenger seats. The vehicles will be equipped with lithium-phosphate (LFP) traction battery pack with a total capacity of 314 kWh, which will allow a range of up to 350 km. The driver's cabin will be enclosed to match local requirements, and the buses will be equipped with air conditioning, onboard WiFi, USB charging sockets and a disabled access area. The passenger information system will be supplied by the Polish partner SIMS. The Polish EkoEnergetyka will supply the charging equipment.
