Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogenSolaris has been awarded winner of the German industry magazine Busplaner’s “Sustainability Award 2019” competition for the Concept Vehicle category. The accolade is for the Urbino 12 hydrogen – a hydrogen bus that will be celebrating its premiere in June, during the UITP Congress in Stockholm.

“In response to the growing interest of the European market in emission-free public transport, Solaris has decided to introduce another eco-friendly bus – Urbino 12 hydrogen. We are pleased that our efforts to expand the portfolio of alternative vehicles have been appreciated”, stated Javier Calleja, CEO of Solaris Bus & Coach S.A.

Solaris is one of the first manufacturers of city buses in Europe to present a hydrogen bus. Urbino 12 hydrogen will be completely emission-free – the only substance emitted while the bus is operating is steam. Energy needed to power the driveline of the bus will be obtained from hydrogen which will be processed in a fuel cell to electric power.

The Urbino 12 hydrogen will be able to cover a distance of more than 350 km in a single refuelling.
