Capable of accommodating up to 50 passengers; the Urbino 9 LE features 21 seats for sitting travellers, with an additional 2 folding seats for those with wheelchairs or prams. The vehicles are powered by an electric motor, which draws its energy from batteries with a total capacity of over 250kWh located on the roof and rear of the bus. Charging of the vehicles is performed via plug-in-connectors.

The Urbino 9 LE is equipped with a slew of modern technology including MirrorEye, a system replacing onboard mirrors with cameras on the vehicle’s exterior and USB sockets for passengers.

The new buses join over 370 existing battery-powered Solaris vehicles in operation within the country.
