Copenhagen, Denmark transit operator Nobina has ordered 13 electric buses from Dutch bus manufacturer Ebusco. Nobina—the largest public transport operator in the Nordics—has opted for the Ebusco 2.2 12-meter city bus with three doors. The Ebusco 2.2 has a 350 kWh battery pack supporting a range of up to 350 km (218 miles).
Ebusco will also supply seven CCS chargers, each with two charging inlets. These chargers have been developed for both fast and normal charging. During the day, the charger can quickly charge a bus with a high capacity of 150 kW per hour. At night, this capacity is shared so that two buses can be smart charged at 75 kW per hour simultaneously. This is better for battery life.
Ebusco will deliver the buses in November 2021. The buses will enter into service in December. Five buses will be in the Holte area and eight will operate in the Glostrup area in Greater Copenhagen.
There are now more than 200 electric Ebusco buses in Europe, including in the major cities of Amsterdam, Munich, Frankfurt and Paris.
