Autobus per favore: Italy has ordered a total of 22 electric buses built by Polish Solaris. Twelve Urbino 12 electric are expected in Bergamo with another ten going to Milan. While both cities opted for the same models, they differed in the interior as well as charging options.
At the other end of the world New Zealand’s capital ordered 32 electric double-decker. The first ten are scheduled for service from July 2018, while the other 22 are only due by 2020 and 2021. The Council of Wellington has signed with Tranzit and Uzabus for nine routes after the city called for tenders in August last year. Overall, the bus fleet is almost 500 strong.
Tesla’s Supercharger supersizing continues as the firm announced another two 40-strong charging sites after building the first in California as reported. One will come to Tesla-loving Oslo in Norway and the other to Baker, a place conveniently situated between Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
