Solaris to develop new 15-meter electric bus

Solaris is developing a new 15-meter electric bus. Called the Urbino 15 LE electric, the tri-axle bus will be built with Scandinavian markets in mind. The model will be offered with two or three doors, and will be available in class I for city operations and class II for intercity operations. The Urbino 15 LE electric will be available with either a plug-in charger or a roof-mounted pantograph.

Solaris will release technical details about the model in April 2020.

Petros Spinaris, Deputy CEO of Solaris, said, “Despite the fact that we are building this model mainly for the Scandinavian markets, we are obviously not limited to offering this bus in these countries only. It will be available to all operators who are searching for a low-entry, tri-axle bus for urban and intercity transport.”
