"We have actually been providing services in Romania since 2013 with our Karsan vehicles. We delivered products to many locations from Dej to Sibiu, Braşov and Braila.

Last year we won a tender in Suceava and this started the era of our electric vehicles in Romania. Jest Electric has been roaming Romanian roads for 1.5 years now. This year we managed to win another tender for ten more Jest Electric buses and this makes us really proud, because we managed to create an opportunity to expand our business despite the pandemic. We are hoping to receive orders for 6 more Jest Electrics in the next three months, as part of coverage extension process. We are very glad that we are steadily becoming the main preference in the Romanian market."
