IVECO BUS has been selected by the Greek Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport to deliver 100 18-meter UrbanWay CNG city buses. The buses are meant to go into operation in the Greek capital Athens by the end of this year. The UrbanWay CNG articulated can run on biomethane.

The newly ordered 100 UrbanWay’s are part of the renewal of the existing bus fleet in Athens. The 18-meter-long UrbanWay meet the Euro VI-e emissions standards for CNG vehicles. The buses on order will be fitted with the Cursor 9 NP engine manufactured by FPT Industrial. With 4 doors, 42 seats and one wheelchair area, they can welcome a total of 144 passengers on board. The vehicles also integrate the new ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) devices to comply with GSR (General Safety Regulation) coming into force in July 2024. Christos Staikouras, Minister of Infrastructure and Transport: “The signing of the contract with Iveco France SAS for the supply of 100 articulated 18-meter

long CNG city buses marks another step towards achieving a three-fold goal set by the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport. This goal concerns the upgrade of urban transportation, the promotion of sustainable urban mobility, and the attainment of a high-level of public transportation services offered to citizens.” Giorgio Zino, Head of IVECO BUS Europe Commercial Operations: “We are delighted that our natural gas technology has impressed the Greek Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport, and that they have chosen our new-generation UrbanWay CNG for the renewal and modernization program of the city bus fleet of Athens.”
