We also have a line of Efficient diesel vehicles with a reduction in consumption and emissions of up to 13% and 30% improvements in the aerodynamic coefficient and weight reductions of up to 950 kg.

Electrifying Cities

Our sustainable mobility solutions are transforming our cities and our planet. No polluting emissions, no noise, efficient and accessible The transport of the future is already here.

Zero direct emissions

A 100% electric articulated Irizar bus eliminates the atmospheric emission of 120 tons of CO2 each year.

Noise reduction

The electric technology makes the noise of the combustion engine disappear, which means there are no exterior sound emissions to annoy pedestrians when the bus is stopped and starting (0 dBA). When driving the noise pollution of the Irizar ie bus is 20% lower.

Green energy factory

The total energy consumed by our plant is produced by a photovoltaic energy Centre located in Álava, which makes it the first fully sustainable European energy plant.
