Bus manufacturer Irizar and Spanish municipal services company FCC Medio Ambiente have begun series production of the first 10 Irizar ie urban electric trucks for refuse collection.

The series includes 4x2 and 6x2 versions.

The Irizar ie urban truck is said to incorporate in-house technology developed by the Irizar Group companies regarding electrical traction, energy storage, and control electronics, combined with more than 100 years’ experience of FCC Medio Ambiente regarding the real needs of municipal services.

Access to the cabin is by a single accessible 370 mm stairway, which makes it the vehicle with lowest access height on the current market, it claims.

In addition, Irizar adds that a single unit destined for Switzerland will be added to the series. This vehicle, the result of the agreement reached with German dealer Jebsen & Jessen Industrial Solutions, will be the first to be launched outside of Spain.

It is a 100% electric truck with a 6x2 three-axle chassis configuration, equipped with Irizar ion-lithium batteries with 340 kWh capacity, charged by means of a Combo 2 charging point in 3.5 hours using a Jema Energy (Irizar Group company) model charger, also supplied by Irizar e-mobility. And the truck will have load capacity of up to 27 tons.

Equipped with technology developed by Irizar Group, the ie truck is also said to feature an electronic stability program (ESP), adaptive levelling suspension and advanced emergency braking system (AEBS) for optimal operational safety. Also there is an integrated camera and frontal radar sensor for the lane departure warning system (LDWS).

A pneumatically-actuated inward-swinging door, which enables worker access regardless of any obstacles in the streets. The cabin has passenger seats that can be folded, so they can be put away to clear the aisle from obstacles.

The ie truck has unsurpassed direct vision due to the low position of the seat and wide front, side, and door windows. Furthermore, instead of rear-view mirrors, they are fitted with two digital mirrors. cameras that project images onto screens in the driving position, for optimal driver visibility.
