Kamaz is building a €14 million plant for electric buses in Moscow, production rate to start at 500 units/pa
Russian CVs manufacturer Kamaz is building a plant for electric buses and their components in Moscow, as well as an R&D innovation centre for improving the quality of electric passenger transport.
Around 14 million euros will be invested in the project. The company has now signed a corresponding agreement with Moscow’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin. At least 500 electric buses per year are to be produced in the Russian capital in the future.
Last year the Moscow bus operator Mosgortrans commissioned Kamaz and GAZ to supply 100 electric buses each, as well as the respective charging infrastructure. In April of this year, Moscow ordered a further 100 electric buses and 36 fast charging stations from Kamaz. The contract provides for the delivery of the electric buses for a period of 15 years
