World premiere



Even more clean kilometers

Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen is a emission-free bus, which is powered by hydrogen fuel cell.  This incredibly innovated vehicle, offers a drive range up to 350km while preserving all advantages of an electric engine. The bus is characterised especially by a low level of noise and lack of vibrations while moving. Moreover, the only product of the chemical reaction, which takes place in the hydrogen fuel cell is water. A refilling time takes couple of minutes, and thus will ensure the flexibility and elasticity to the vehicle’s operator.

Sharply outlined body line, its comfortable interior but most importantly ecological drive guarantee novelty in the industry as well as uniqueness of an travelling experience not only for drivers but also passengers of existing metropolises.

The premiere of this vehicle was taking place during International Association of Public Transport UITP in Stockholm on 09-12 June 2019.

Even more clean kilometers

New chapter in electromobility

E-mobility is the future of public transport. Solaris Bus & Coach 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.
