In 2023, the Italian bus market recovered significantly with over 4,000 vehicle registrations, marking a significant increase with respect to the previous year.

According to ANFIA data, the Italian bus market underwent a remarkable recovery in 2023, exceeding 4,000 vehicles registered, a milestone that hadn’t been achieved since as far back as 2004. It marks a significant increase on the 2,351 registrations of the previous year. Most of the registrations, more than half of the 4,043 number plates, were in the Class II category, with Iveco Bus confirming its position as the market leader with 1,782 vehicles. The urban bus sector had a considerable boost, nearly doubling the 2022 result with 1,374 vehicles registered, although they still account for one third of the total market. After a significant drop in 2022, coaches resumed growth, rising from 359 to 525, including 19 school buses. Iveco Bus further consolidated its position as market leader with a 44.1% share, followed by Daimler Buses Italia at 22.9%. MAN remained in third place, but lost market share. The resumption of deliveries, on the other hand, could lead to the 2024 revival of Industria Italiana Autobus, which came to the end of a difficult year. In electric buses, Solaris remained the leader with 115 units, followed by BYD with 87 and Karsan with 44. Iveco Bus, on the other hand, stopped at 22 vehicles. There was a decisive upswing in electric drive in 2023, accounting for 9% of the registered total and 26.42% in the Class I segment. With respect to other drive categories, 57% of vehicles sold were diesel, 17.5% natural gas (CNG), 14.4% diesel-electric hybrid, and 2.3% natural gas-electric hybrid. Hydrogen-powered buses began their journey on the Italian market. 40 new hydrogen vehicles are expected in Bologna in 2024, 9 in Bolzano and the first 90 in Venice in 2025, all from Solaris.
