Solaris Debuts New Urbino 12 Model at Mobility Move 2024

Solaris has officially unveiled a brand new model of the Urbino 12 electric bus at the Mobility Move trade show in Berlin.

The latest revision of the bus, the model features a new drivetrain, allowing the company to forgo an engine tower. This innovation has enabled Solaris to arrange the necessary vehicle components comprehensively on the roof of the bus, as well as enhance passenger capacity with a new total of up to 41 seats, 7 more than the previous model.

The bus, which is currently on display in Berlin, can fit up to 100 passengers, and is equipped with new-generation batteries, with various options for different configurations of battery capacity available to prospective future buyers. Roof-mounted batteries allow for all-day operability, with the model currently being demonstrated featuring six batteries with a total capacity of over 600kWh.

So far, 1500 units of the Urbino 12 have been manufactured, with the current iterations of the vehicle currently operating in over 120 towns and cities throughout Europe following the initial launch in 2011. The new model also meets all current safety requirements, including GSR2 and cybersecurity criteria scheduled to be mandated from July 2024.

The revised Urbino 18, an articulated vehicle, was officially unveiled in Autumn 2024 at the Busworld Trade Fair.
