FPT batteries for Iveco electric buses

31 January 2023

FPT Industrial will supply up to 500 high-performance battery packs to sister company Iveco Bus to equip its fleet of E-Way 18 m electric articulated city buses to be delivered in Belgium, following a recently signed framework agreement with the Flemish government-owned public transport enterprise De Lijn.

The vehicles will be deployed in several cities in Flanders, with delivery of the first 65 buses scheduled to begin in 2024. They will represent the largest fleet of Iveco Bus articulated electric buses in operation.

Produced at FPT Industrial’s new carbon-neutral ePowertrain Plant in Turin, Italy, FPT’s battery packs have been developed for LCVs, minibuses and bus applications. The new production site is the first totally carbon-neutral Iveco Group plant, achieving its targets by offsetting its CO2 emissions with the purchase of energy from renewable sources and carbon credits.

The 69 kWh FPT battery pack for bus applications is a modular battery pack offering high energy density for city bus applications. Using a lithium nickel cobalt manganese (NMC) chemistry, the eBS 69 battery pack offers quick charging/discharging times, FPT said. The high flexibility and modular design makes FPT battery packs adaptable to different applications, from urban to intercity buses.

In addition to battery packs, the ePowertrain Plant also produces electric axles for heavy commercial vehicles, and electric central drives for LCVs, representing another important milestone for FPT Industrial’s decarbonization path and for its strategy of achieving net-zero emissions for its products and all its industrial activities.
