Electric buses perfectly meet the requirements of city traffic. They are exceptionally quiet and generates no emissions. What’s more, thanks to the smooth operation of the electric motor and the low level of vibrations, they provide drivers and passengers with driving comfort. They realistically improve the quality of public transport and city life.
Electric vehicles guarantee low operating costs. They do not require as many maintenance operations during their service life as the vehicles with conventional drives do, such us oil change or other advanced maintenance processes.
The Urbino electric family of buses includes models of various lengths: 9 meters, 12 meters, 15 meters, 18 meters and even 24 meters.
Attractive design is to give a clear message that Solaris in innovation- and future-oriented. Cutting-edge design and highly aesthetic finish are to draw passengers’ attention and encourage them to use urban transport. A wide range of possibilities in terms of vehicle length, engine, battery type, as well as methods of charging them, make the electric Solaris buses perfectly adapt to the specificity of various cities – climate, urban traffic characteristics, line occupancy, and even terrain. Emission-free drive, innovative and safe ADAS support systems, modern equipment and comfortable interior make electric Solaris buses a real, green alternative to diesel urban transport.
The urban environment offers ideal conditions for an appropriate charging infrastructure. Our electric buses are adapted to both fast charging methods, thanks to a pantograph installed on the roof of every vehicle, and night charging in a bus depot using a conventional plug-in system. The driving conditions in the city, e. g. with frequent acceleration and braking, allow, in particular, to effectively use energy recovery systems.
Solaris has systematically solidified its position as an e-mobility leader by executing large contracts for delivery of emission-free buses awarded by more and more towns and cities. Today, more than 1,000 such vehicles are in use in 100 European cities. The largest contracts for battery-powered buses included the delivery of 130 articulated Solaris Urbino electric buses for MZA, the public transport operator in Warsaw, 90 Solaris Urbino electric buses for ATM in Milan, and 106 battery-powered buses for Berlin-based public transport company BVG.
Perfect for city traffic
Electric buses perfectly meet the requirements of city traffic. They are extremely quiet and emit no emissions. What is more, thanks to the smooth operation of the electric motor and the low level of generated vibrations, they provide drivers and passengers with high driving comfort. They trully improve the quality of public transport and city life.
Low operating costs
Electric vehicles guarantee low operating costs. They do not require as much maintenance as conventional drive vehicles, such as oil changes or other advanced service processes.
The urban environment offers ideal conditions for an appropriate charging infrastructure. Our electric buses are adapted to both fast charging methods, thanks to the pantograph placed on the roof of each vehicle, and overnight charging in the depot, using a classic plug-in system. Urban driving conditions, such as frequent acceleration and braking, allow particularly effective use of energy recovery systems, such as recuperation.
