BVG Berlin orders 50 Solaris electric buses

Polish bus manufacturer Solaris has received an order for 50 of its Urbino 18 electric buses from Berlin public transport company BVG, which currently operates more than 120 Solaris Urbino 12 and Urbino 18 buses.

Delivery is scheduled for 2024 and 2025. The contract is part of a framework agreement that can be extended over the coming years.

The new buses are supplied with 240 kW asynchronous motors. They are also equipped with eSConnect, Solaris’s proprietary system designed to increase efficiency and streamline servicing.  

“Solaris has already provided a significant number of battery buses to the BVG, which are in daily service on the streets of Berlin, thus contributing to a more sustainable environment within the city,” said Christian Goll, Managing Director of Solaris Deutschland.
