Solaris signed a contract worth 30 million euros with the transit operator of Lithuania’s second largest city, Kaunas. UAB Kauno Autobusai ordered 85 trolleybuses and expects their delivery over the next 15 months.
The trolleybuses ordered by the Lithuanian public transport company measure 12 metres and are of type Solaris Trollino. They accommodate up to 85 passengers, 27 seated. The trolleybuses are equipped with an asynchronous traction motor that is stronger than 150 kW.
