The city of São Paulo is riding to a more sustainable future, with the help of Enel X. As it continues along its energy transition journey, the Brazilian city's government has purchased 50 electric buses, part of its goal to have 20% of its fleet be full-electric by 2024. Public transportation company, SPTrans, will operate the buses. In terms of the deal, Enel X is responsible for managing an integrated e-Bus-as-a-Service solution that includes vehicle delivery as well as the entire recharging infrastructure. The vehicles - being used by bus route operators Ambiental, Transpass (part of the Transvida Group) and Transwolff - have been gradually introduced onto the city's streets since September. Production is being handled locally, by bus manufacturer Caio/Eletra. Enel X's initial investment in the project is 30 million euros, equivalent to 160 million Brazilian reais. The initiative is part of the city council's efforts to renew the urban bus fleet with a more energy efficient and less-polluting one: each eBus emits 118 tons less CO₂ yearly than traditional, petrol-powered equivalents, while also significantly reducing noise pollution. In addition to these first 50 vehicles, negotiations between Enel X and other partners, such as operators and other automakers approved by SPTrans, involve the possibility of further increasing the municipality's electric fleet by the end of 2024.
