The first Solaris intercity electric bus close to the premiere

“We keep our word” – that is the slogan for the online premiere of the new model in the portfolio of Solaris electric buses that will take place on October 20, 2020 at 12:00. The manufacturer had announced the unveiling of the Urbino 15 LE electric, the first intercity electric bus with Solaris’ logo, at the beginning of the year, before the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic in Europe. Despite this difficult time and unexpected challenges, Solaris keeps its word and introduces its latest electric vehicle to the market. At the same time, it opens a new – intercity – chapter in its emission-free offer.

The bus marks a new phase in Solaris brand development, as the Urbino electric will ventures out of town with it. The tri-axle bus is the first proposition in Solaris’ electric portfolio that meets requirements of both the first and the second vehicle class, and of both categories at the same time. This means that the bus can be used as a city bus, but also for intercity travels.

470 kWh for the Solaris intercity electric bus

The Solaris High Energy+ batteries (launched at Busworld 2019 and manufactured by BMZ for Solaris), with a total capacity of 470 kWh, offer ranges of up to a few hundred kilometres on a single charge in real-life conditions. It makes it possible for operators to plan zero-emission routes not only within the city confines but also beyond these, as requested to an electric intercity bus.

The Urbino 15 LE electric is a modern combination of safety, comfort and style. The electric drive, innovative driver assistance systems, cameras  instead of side mirrors and a modern interactive touch panel will guarantee a calm and confident ride for the driver. A spacious interior with air conditioning can fit up to 65 comfortable seats and practical solutions such as USB chargers, reading lamps or comfortable armrests will make the journey a pleasure for passengers.
