In the Group we are making great strides in the development of new solutions and technologies that reduce consumption and emissions, improve sustainability and add more value to customers.
We present the different alternative technologies we continue to work on, which will be key to your future.
Diesel, biodiesel and HVO
Irizar brand coaches are only offered with engines that meet Euro6E emissions standards. Fuel consumption, and consequently, CO2 emissions of Irizar integral vehicles are at their best levels and increasingly close to 20 l/100 km or 5 km/l for 12.2m and 19.5 Tonne maximum weight units. Supplier tests of the power train in these vehicles show very competitive results in performance, efficiency and sustainability.
Hybrid parallel technology, combining a propulsion engine with an electric motor that provides power or generates electricity. Depending on requirements, the engines can act individually or together to achieve optimum efficiency and performance. Today we have a complete range of hybrids with 6.7l Euro6E combustion engines, approved to run on fossil diesel or HVO (diesel of plant origin).
Natural gas (CNG & LNG)
The compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) were recently brought into the range of sustainable technologies.
These coaches reduce CO2 emissions by about 25%, NOx emissions by up to 60% and emissions of particulate matter by over 98%. In addition to higher thermal performance than diesel, vibrations and noise emissions are also minimized by between 4-5 dB.
The Irizar Group's technological road map for the coming years contemplates the development of short, medium and long distance electric coaches and buses with hydrogen fuel cells, which will gradually be extended to the rest of the Irizar Group's range of vehicles (buses and trucks for urban services).
