The Polish vehicle producer Solaris has handed over 12 new electric buses to the Italian transport firm ART in Bergamo. These twelve vehicles are the first Urbino Electric cars of the Polish brand to be imported for use in Italy.
In the next month, Solaris has said they plan to deliver another 10 Urbino electric vehicles to a firm in Milano, significantly branching out from their previous development. Currently, Solaris has imported about 850 vehicles into Italy, although the electric buses are the first of their kind in the southern European nation.
The buses are powered by dual electric motors, with a capacity of 125 kW each. The energy is provided by an appropriately sized 240 kWh battery.
