MPK Poznań put on service its first Solaris Urbino electric bus. The vehicle is part of a batch of 21 Solaris ebuses (15 articulated and  six 12-m ones). The buses are fitted with Solaris High Power batteries and are suited for recharging through a roof-mounted pantograph and a classic plug-in device. The models supplied to Poznań have plug-in charging sockets on both sides of the bus, which will enable recharging of several vehicles simultaneously.

The low-floor vehicles are fitted with an extensive passenger information system, air-conditioning, energy-saving LED lighting and USB chargers in the passenger compartment.

“Same as in 1996 we delivered our first low-floor buses to Poznań, today we deliver the first completely emission-free electric buses for the capital of Greater Poland. I am proud of the fact that our company, which pays great attention to the development of sustainable transport, contributes to improving the quality of life of the citizens of Poznań”, said Javier Calleja, CEO of Solaris Bus & Coach.

The zero emission vehicles began their inaugural courses on route 174. Their first passengers were first graders from Primary School No. 34, who, after a lesson on ecology and environmental benefits of using public transport, could experience a ride by electric buses.
