Urbino mild hybrid

Urbino mild hybrid

New in our portfolio

Solaris Bus & Coach sp. z o.o. has prepared an addition to the product portfolio, thus enriching the existing offer of low-emission vehicles with the Solaris Urbino mild hybrid. It is the response to needs for innovative urban transport vehicles which minimise the impact of such transport on the natural environment, while at the same time allowing to generate considerable savings and to reduce fuel consumption.

Commonly known as mild hybrid on the market, this solution marks a natural evolution of the recuperation technology in buses - a technology using energy generated during braking. Thanks to mild hybrid solution, vehicles are more environmental friendly and going far beyond the EURO 6 strict emissions standards for diesel engines.

Recuperation technology

The system is based on three crucial elements: an electric machine, an energy storage system and a driver for the structure monitoring the operation of the system. When braking, the electric machine of the bus works as a generator and it recharges the energy storage with the maximum available power. The capacity of the energy storage tank has been chosen so as to facilitate the recuperation of energy when braking from the speed of ca. 60 kph downwards. When the storage unit is partially or fully recharged, during the acceleration process, the electric machine acts as an electric engine supporting the operation of the diesel engine.
