Solaris to supply 3 electric buses to Włocławek

Solaris Bus & Coach S.A. will supply 3 electric buses to the Polish city of Włocławek. The contract is to be performed by the end of this year. The order is worth nearly PLN 8.5 million (US$2.275 million).

The Solaris Urbino 12 electric buses commissioned by the Włocławek City Hall will be the first public transport vehicles with electric drivelines in this city. The Solaris High Energy batteries feature a capacity of 200 kWh; the buses havean axle with integrated electric motors boasting a power of 2x125 kW.

Apart from the vehicles themselves the producer is also due to deliver four stand-alone charging stations for bus depots. The buses will be adapted to plug-in battery charging. Moreover, their construction will allow for the assembly of pantographs which may serve as another charging mode in the future.

The twelve-meter Urbino electrics will be fully air-conditioned. The awarding authority has also chosen a hybrid heating system for the vehicle, involving thermal pre-conditioning, as such heating will help reduce energy usage in the challenging autumn-winter season, which, in turn, will enable the bus to cover a longer distance on a single charging session. The three Urbino 12 electric buses are to roll out on the streets of Włocławek in October 2019.

Good move.
The City of Shenzhen-China has a 100% e-bus fleet of 16359 units. Probably more than in all USA/Canada cities.
What an example to follow?
