Further Solaris-branded electric buses peek into the BVG fleet in Berlin. After the 5 Urbinos 12 Electriccurrently in operation in the German capital, now arrive the 15 ones commissioned in August 2018. They are Urbinos 12 with electric drive.

The vehicles are equipped with a drive axle with integrated motors (a highly appreciated solution on the German market) and Solaris High Energy batteries with a total capacity of 240 kWh. BVG has opted for the plug-in recharge.

In March, Solaris signed a contract for the supply of another 15 electric buses to BVG, this time in an articulated version. Berlin will thus become the German city with the largest number of Solaris electric buses.
