The tender procedures for these vehicles were conducted by the Gubielo Spa purchasing group for the carrier ATAC Roma.

The hybrid vehicles are scheduled for delivery in Rome in 2024, while the CNG-powered vehicles will be delivered in in 2024 and 2025. ATAC Roma also has the option to extend this order by an additional 78 CNG units in the coming months.

In total, Solaris has delivered over 1,800 vehicles to Italy, which is one of the company’s key markets.
