NVG Omnibus-Betriebs-GmbH based in Würzburg, opted  for the first time in electric buses choosing the Solaris Urbino 12 bus model. Two units has been recently delivered in addition to the charging infrastructure, that is two stationary chargers with a maximum power of 150 kW and a mobile charger of 50 kW. 

The vehicles have an electric axle with two traction motors integrated (125 kW each). The power used will be stored in a set of Solaris High Energy batteries with a total capacity of 300 kWh.

On board there is a room for 70 passengers, 38 of which are seated. The electric buses for Würzburg will contain a monitoring system, internal LED lighting, ramps, a passenger information system, air-conditioning, USB chargers and an electric heating system. 

The German carrier also ordered the modern system for remote diagnostics eSConnect. It provides tracking data on the location of the bus fleet at given times, and including the updated battery status. “Furthermore”, points out the manufacturer, “it allows for the remote detection of potential errors reported by the vehicle on the driver’s panel, which makes it possible to quickly respond to possible defects.”

So far, Solaris has delivered or secured orders for nearly 1,000 electric buses in 80 cities in 18 countries. In Germany alone, Solaris has supplied or contracted over 200 electric buses by now.
