Moving rapidly towards becoming a world brand in the public transportation sector, Karsan continues to be the choice of Europe with the products and technologies it has developed. Continuing to grow especially in its target markets, Karsan added a new one to the tenders it won.

A first for the 12-metre e-ATA
Within the scope of the tender, Karsan will produce 10 e-ATAK (8 meters) and 13 e-ATA (12 meters) and offer them to the use of the people of the Chitila region. Saying that they aim to deliver the vehicles by the end of this year, Karsan CEO Okan Baş said, “Within the scope of the tender, we will install a total of 28 fast and slow charging stations in Chitila, together with our electric buses. Thus, we will achieve the electrification of the public transport system of the city of Chitila. As Karsan, we are happy to provide the first electric vehicles of the city of Chitila with our leading role in electric mobility.” Stating that they signed a contract for the 12-meter size of e-ATA for the first time with this tender, Okan Baş said, “e-ATA and e-ATAK are our models that have proven their success in Europe. Our 12-meter e-ATA model won the 'Bus of the Year' award in the urban transportation category at the Sustainable Bus Awards last year. e-ATAK has been the market leader in Europe for the second year in a row. With this tender, we are also proud that we will be serving with the 10-meter size of our 18 and 12-meter e-ATA model, which runs on the roads in Romania.”
Our Karsan electric park in Romania will reach 240 vehicles
Emphasizing that Romania is one of Karsan's main markets, Okan Baş continued: “With our distributor Anadolu Automobil Rom, the Karsan brand is growing stronger in the Romanian market. As of today, 175 electric Karsan branded vehicles are in service in Romania. With the latest Chitila tender we won and the current orders we will deliver, our vehicle park in the country will reach 240 units by the end of the year. We will also establish charging stations within the scope of the tender. In this way, we will have realized the electric transformation of the public transportation system of the city of Chitila. As Karsan, we will continue to accelerate our development in new markets, while strengthening our presence in our target markets.”
