Enel's next-gen energy subsidiary Enel X has partnered with electric vehicles maker Arrival to test a zero-emission battery electric bus in Italy.

The tests will be conducted on the basis of an analysis matrix that Enel X has developed to look at all the main features of Arrival Bus. The tests will be conducted at the Vallelunga circuit. Enel X Way's charging services will be used to charge the vehicles.

“Arrival buses look very promising," Francesco Venturini, CEO of Enel X, said. "They are a technologically advanced means of transport that, if integrated within our value offer, can potentially provide operators and end users with the best possible customer experience."

Currently, Enel X Way manages nearly 350,000 charging points, both directly and through interoperability agreements in place around the world. As a global platform for e-Mobility, the company is focused on developing flexible charging technologies and solutions to improve the customer experience by supporting the electrification of transport for consumers, businesses, cities and public administrations.

Arrival was founded in 2015 with a mission to make air clean by replacing all vehicles with equitable electric solutions - produced by local Microfactories. 

"We are very excited to partner with Enel X and Enel X Way to assist bus operators and cities around the world as they accelerate the transition to electric vehicles, bringing cleaner air to our cities," said Avinash Rugoobur, President of Arrival. "Our electric bus aims to set new standards in passenger experience while reducing costs for operators. By manufacturing our vehicles in local micro-factories, we are fostering a global green transition that is fair, bringing jobs to local communities, using local suppliers and building vehicles designed for local markets."
