UNVI presents in Vigo the new generation of its double-decker open top 100% electric bus

In collaboration with Vitrasa (Avanza Group – ADO Mobility Group), on Monday 28th of November it was presented our succesful Zero Emission Touristic Bus UNVI e.DDOT with the presence of Mayor of Vigo – Abel Caballero, Vigo Free Trade Zone Consortium Delegate – David Regardes, Urban Mobility Director at Avanza – Manuel Ramo, Vitrasa Director – Carlos González and UNVI General Manager – Javier González. The vehicle will perform driving trials for a week through the main streets of the city.
After the achieved success of more than 25 doubledecker open top buses delivered since 2018 to the main European touristic cities as Paris, London, Brussels and Amsterdam, the performed trials in Vigo will confirm the total adaptation of our own solution for the touristic bus routes in the city of Vigo.
Tourist routes which are known by a complex topography but despite of that, our bus has exceeded the previous expectations, showing a great maneuverability. The high power available with up to 400 kW made easy any uphill, even very hard, to drive with plenty of safety and comfort, without forcing the driving as any other solutions require.
With energy consumption below 1 kWh/km and keeping a high level of braking energy recovery over 30%, it is confirmed that our 100% electric UNVI e.DDOT bus is very easy to drive with a very fast learning to achieve minimum consumption while keeping high comfort level and lowest noise, thanks to the electric wheel-in-hub motors without transmission or any other conversion on top of the excellent materials and finishing’s. The driver’s ergonomics is also optimized as the continuous braking can be made with a retarder lever, either individually or used in combination with the brake pedal, reducing the need of right foot used during the driving hours.
We hope that 2022 will be the year where our customers in Spain will start to enjoy the best Zero Emission solution for their tourism customers.
The new orders will count with the higher energy density batteries which will allow to reduce further the weight, and with the possibility to offer up to 10 years of guarantee for the batteries. Everything keeping the flexibility in terms of layout and parameters, as bus length (from 10 to 13 m) as in terms of battery capacity (from 145 to 434 kWh).


The new school season will start in the Ourense region, in terms of interurban public transport, with 12 new UNVI M20 vehicles that are more modern, accessible and with a lower environmental impact.

These vehicles with a capacity of 39 passengers have, among their characteristics, seat belts, an access ramp for passengers in wheelchairs and adjustable pneumatic suspension for better accessibility, as well as class II certification with R66.02.

The IVECO 70c21 chassis provides the new vehicles with 210 horse power and Hi-Matic automatic transmission, which make this proposal, bodied by UNVI, the vehicle that best adapts to the service and requirements of interurban and suburban transport in the city and region of Ourense.

The UNVI M20s are integrated into the lines of the Integrated Network of Ourense (RIO) operated through the UTE Minho Bus-Empresa Gavilanes.

The Head of the Department of Infrastructure and Mobility of the Xunta de Galicia, Ms. Ethel Vázquez, has chaired the presentation of the buses with which the region’s fleet is modernized and will allow it to serve 20 municipalities
