HYCITY® , the latest generation of hydrogen-powered buses manufactured by SAFRA, will be unveiled for the first time at the Busworld trade show, to be held in Brussels from October 7 to 12. This will be an opportunity to present this brand-new model, which replaces its predecessor, the Businova® , to all those involved in passenger transport.

Benefiting from unprecedented feedback for the only manufacturer of a 100% French hydrogen vehicle, using the latest technologies and with a sleek design, offered in 2 and 3-door versions with low and full flat floors, this bus completes the catalog of solutions around decarbonized mobility offered by the company, including the H2-PACK® hydrogen retrofit kit, which enables diesel coaches to be converted into zero-emission vehicles.

SAFRA will also be showcasing its solutions and services linked to the decarbonization of transport, such as its fleet management tool, Vhysion®, its full maintenance services, and its expertise in extending life of passenger transport vehicles.

The SAFRA booth number 955 in Hall 9, will focus on sustainable mobility, welcoming HYCITY® for its first exhibition.

We’re very proud to be able to present it at Busworld 2023, surrounded by bus manufacturers from all over the world” declared Stéphane Prin, CEO of SAFRA.
