Tribus has developed a new innovation for public transport, the Movitas. A 100% electric citybus that offers a solution to reduce air pollution in urban areas and city centers. The powerful design is lightweight, compact and agile making even inner cities highly accessible. The Movitas has four wheel steering and is not afraid of tight corners. The Movitas has modular battery packs and allows for opportunity charging (pantograph) or depot charging (CCS plug).

Movitas at the Dutch Automotive Innovation Awards

Movitas design awarded with GIO quality mark

The design of the Movitas has not gone unnoticed. It has received an official GIO recognition for Good Industrial Design. We can also share that the Movitas has been nominated for the Special Award for Excellence that will be presented later this year.

More about the GIO Award


The past months we have been working hard to realise the new long size (9,7m) Movitas. The design has been optimised and has several big improvements, like air suspension and a significant weight reduction. Prototype 2 will be used for production that starts in 2021 and it will be driving as a demomodel with our customers.


The story tells how Tribus and supplier Sioux Technologies contribute to a more sustainable world by developing a new modular electrical bus and all the challenges that come with such a project.

Sioux Technologies and Tribus Movitas - Building a bus for the future

Homologation nearly finished!

The frist driving demo model was launched at Busworld 2019. Now we have created proto 2 which is the longest version with length 9,7 meters. We are nearly finished with the homologation and expect to hit the road early 2022.

Our time schedule


Thanks to the complete flat floor the Movitas can transport more standing passengers than a bus with similar dimensions. The Movitas is modular built and available in three length sizes; 8,20 – 8,95 – 9,70 meter.

    The Movitas is clean, durable, agile and compact. This allows new bus lines that can be used deeper into inner cities. Thanks to the electric motor and the 100% electric HVAC system, the bus has zero emissions and produces no noises. The Movitas is a zero emission city bus that reduces our ecological footprint.
