New chapter in electromobility
E-mobility is the future of public transport. Solaris Bus & Coach sp. z o.o. focused especially on development of electric drives already 10 years ago. Every day hundreds of busses running on streets in multiple European countries confirm fully electrical drive’s reliability. Millions of electric kilometers run by our busses is the basis for experience. Busses powered by hydrogen cells are also a basis for completion of our emission – free portfolio.
Hydrogen technology is complementary in regard to battery drives. Development’s synergy of all pillars of electro mobility will speed up the public transport’s transformation to become completely emission-free. This is a key do ensure secure and pleasant future city space.
Urbino 18 hydrogen
The electricity from the hydrogen fuel cell in this articulated Solaris bus is transferred directly to the driveline.
Solaris batteries with a capacity of around 60 kWh, mounted in the vehicle serve as an auxiliary power source, used, for example, during acceleration as well as a storage for recovered energy. It will be able to cover about 350 km on a single refill in various weather conditions. Full refuelling of the vehicle takes around 20 minutes.
Thanks to the hydrogen technology applied and an increased number of new, light hydrogen tanks, the brand-new bus will perform excellently on longer routes.
