Solaris supples Six Urbino 12 Electric Buses for Malbork
Solaris has executed a contract for six low-floor 12-metre electric buses for a client in Malbork. This investment in electric vehicles makes the city one of the most modern operators in Europe. The supplied vehicles are equipped with Solaris High Energy batteries with a total capacity of 240 kWh. The bus’s construction will allow for both slow and fast charging. During the day the buses will be recharged fast using inverted pantographs, installed at the Piaski terminus and the terminus at the Municipal Cemetery. At the end of each day they will be plugged in to charge at the bus depot.
Each bus can carry up to 26 seated passengers. A monitoring system and a cutting-edge passenger information system in the passenger compartment will guarantee safe travel. Passengers’ comfort will be ensured by state-of-the-art air-conditioning and an electric axle with two integrated electric motors boasting a power of 125 kW each will ensure a smooth ride without excessive vibrations for both drivers and passengers.
These new e-buses have joined a fleet of Solaris buses, some of which rolled out onto the streets of the city back in 2012.
