Three Norwegian operators have placed further orders for Solaris electric vehicles.

Under the agreements signed, another seven zero-emission vehicles from the Bolechowo-based manufacturer will be delivered.
Four Solaris Urbino 12 electric will soon be included in the Norgesbuss operator fleet from Oslo.

These buses will join two Urbino 12 electrics delivered last year.

They will be equipped with 145kWh Solaris high power batteries that will be recharged via both a plug-in connector and fast charging pantograph.

One of the newly ordered buses is a Solaris Urbino 8.9 LE electric, which will be delivered to Sorlandsruta for operation in Mandal.

It will be driven by a 160kW engine with the energy needed to power the vehicle stored in 160kWh Solaris high energy batteries.

Charging of the batteries will take place via a plug-in connection, while the vehicle will be mechanically and electrically prepared for the subsequent installation of a fast-charging pantograph.

Two Urbino 12 electrics have also been ordered by Boreal and they will be operated in Kristiansand.

Electric axles with integrated electric motors with the power of 2x125kW will be used to drive the vehicles.

For energy storage, a set of 145kWh Solaris high power batteries have been specified, charged both via the plug-in connector and through a pantograph. Boreal received five Urbino 12 electrics in 2018.
