Dutch Transport Adds 49 Electric Buses

By Mike Osenga28 March 2019

The Dutch public transport company QBUZZ has purchased 49 articulated Heuliez GX437 electric city buses to be used in the Groningen and Drenthe regions of The Netherlands representing the largest order to date for this model.

Deliveries will start in December 2019 with an option to replace a further 51 units within four years leading to the complete electrification of the entire regional bus network.

The 100+ passenger model GX437 bus is powered by a Lithium-ion NMC battery system that can be charged either slowly overnight or, thanks to its rapid charging technology, during the day while on the move, allowing for more long range journeys. In addition, the bus has a lightweight structure of 100% stainless steel, the body is manufactured using composite panels and the chassis has reinforced protection.

Heuliez is part of CNH Industrial.
