The electric buses will be compatible with both plug-in and pantograph charging. They will have a 2-2-2-2 door layout and will be able to carry 141 passengers, with 43 seated.

In addition, the new buses will be equipped with efficient air conditioning and heating, a comprehensive passenger information system, video surveillance and USB ports. These systems will all be powered by electricity.

This order builds upon MPK’s ongoing relationship with Solaris, increasing its fleet of Urbino electric vehicles to 114 units.
