Urbino 12 LE lite hybrid

The “low-calorie” name of the vehicle refers to its biggest advantage: low fuel consumption reducing the costs of exploitation in comparison to similar products available on the market. The main objective of the engineers of the Solaris Research and Development Office who developed the Urbino lite hybrid was to create a bus, which would consume less than 30 litres of fuel per 100 km in the SORT 2 test.

The engineering work was focused on multiple areas in order to accomplish the above, but one of the main factors was reduction of the vehicle’s weight. The curb weight of the Solaris Urbino 12 LE lite hybrid is under 9 tonnes and its weight with passengers is 15 tonnes.

The heart of the drive system in the new Urbino model is the Cummins ISBE6 engine with volume of only 4.5 litres. The unit, which fulfils the restrictive EURO 6 exhaust emission standard, has 210 HP and torque of 850 Nm. The drive system of the Urbino LE lite hybrid is also equipped with an electrical machine with nominal power of 11.5 kW, which is tasked with recuperating energy during the braking process and supporting the combustion engine when the vehicle starts moving, which consequentially leads to it consuming less fuel.

The Solaris Urbino 12 LE lite hybrid is available in version with two door in the 2-2-0 arrangement. The bus is able to take up to 85 passengers, 41 of them seated. The front axle of the vehicle is provided by ZF RL55 and the drive axle is DANA type G150. The size of the wheels used in the vehicle differs from the standard solutions applied in Solaris city buses. This vehicle is equipped with wheels of a smaller diameter: 19.5 inches. The wheelbase of the Solaris Urbino LE lite hybrid is 5900 mm with front overhang of 2550 mm and rear overhang of 3240 mm.

Despite having a “slimmed-down” build and several new components, the Solaris Urbino 12 LE lite hybrid, is uncompromising when it comes to the safety and comfort of both the passengers and the drivers, which is true for all Solaris products. The safety standards fulfilled by the vehicle include those specified in provisions R29 and R66.

Description

The Solaris Urbino hybrid are equipped with a driveline consisting of an electric engine or engines and a conventional drive. Using this solution the buses manage to reduce fuel consumption by 20 to 30% on average, compared to a Diesel-fuelled vehicle. What is more, Solaris’ hybrid buses can also be adapted to cover a certain distance completely emission-free. Solaris has hybrid systems in serial or parallel version on offer. The energy storage unit in Urbino hybrids can be both batteries as well as supercapacitators.
