Solaris Bus & Coach has won a tender in the Spanish town of Fuenlabrada in the Madrid region. The municipal transport company EMT Fuenlabrada S.A. expects delivery of four Urbino 12 electric buses along with charging infrastructure.
Solaris says the order is worth over two million euros and will supply the zero-emission city buses to Fuenlabrada no later than by May 2023. The city in central Spain joins about 30 towns that have opted for Solaris e-buses.
“The Urbino 12 electric bus is the most popular vehicle in our electric offering,” said Javier Calleja, CEO of Solaris. “I am very proud that another city is opting to develop zero-emission transport by choosing Solaris vehicles.”
The Polish company, now owned by Spain’s Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles, has been in Spain since 2010. Today, over 500 Solaris buses are being driven through Spanish cities. Three-quarters of them feature a zero-emission or low-emission drive, says Solaris.
For EMT Fuenlabrada, the Urbino 12 buses will carry over 70 passengers, including 21 people seated. The drive is provided by 240 kW traction motors and batteries with a total power of over 400 kWh.
