TATA Motors said that its wholly owned subsidiary in Spain, TATA Hispano Motors Carrocera SA has received an order to supply 10 hybrid low floor buses for public transport in Madrid.
TATA Motors in a statement said that “TATA Motors has won an order for supplying 10 CNG series hybrid low-floor city buses, to be built on Tata Motors chassis to EMT Madrid, a Madrid city public transportation company. The buses will be delivered in 2012.”
The hybrid buses will offer improved fuel economy and low emissions compared to a conventional bus, the company said without giving details of the order value.

The company has two manufacturing units one in Spain that caters to the European market and the other one in Casablanca, which caters to the Moroccan and other North African markets.
