A wide range of technical solutions allows the bus configuration to be perfectly tailored to individual operator needs.
The propulsion system is powered by energy stored in a set of four battery pack – choice between Solaris High Power and Solaris High Energy. The additional energy storage facilities allow to cover much longer distances than was the case with, i. e. the Urbino 8,9 LE electric bus. This will make it possible for operators to plan zero-emission routes not only within city confines but also beyond them.
The batteries can be recharged using a plug-in connection and through one of three types of pantograph – a conventional one, an inverted pantograph, as well as a completely new type of pantograph, reaching higher than competing solutions.
In order to optimise the energy consumption, the Urbino 9 LE electric can be fitted with hybrid heating based on a heat pumps. Solaris also offers a possibility to install any type of air conditioning system, out of all those available in the Solaris’ offer.
