Olivier Michard, Member of the Management Board of Solaris for Sales and Marketing said:

The high interest in Solaris hydrogen buses confirms the global changes in urban mobility. I am pleased that more and more cities are investing in sustainable public transport development, which is one of the few areas genuinely ready to fulfill the mission of emission neutrality. I am glad that our brand's vehicles are a symbol of this change.
