A brand new type of a 12-meter T´CITY Škoda trolleybus is on a test in Pilsen, Czech Republic. The novelty among Škoda Group products will pass a series of tests in the West-Bohemian metropolis in order to accomplish the type and homologation tests.

The vehicle is equipped with traction batteries. In the future, Škoda Group will also offer a vehicle without a battery, the manufacturer says.

In late 2021 Skoda unveiled its new battery-electric bus E’CITY, that has been then tested in Prague.
