Solaris Bus & Coach has secured another contract to supply electric vehicles to Milan. The Italian metropolis will welcome 105 Urbino 18 articulated electric buses. The delivery of the 105 articulated Solaris e-buses will start in first half of 2025.
The partnership between Solaris and ATM in Milan began in 2014. Since then, the public transport operator has ordered nearly 500 vehicles from the manufacturer. Since 2018 Solaris has been supplying Milan solely with zero-emission vehicles. The Milanese Urbino 18 electric bus will be equipped with Solaris High Energy batteries with a total capacity of 700 kWh. Similar to previous
e-buses delivered to Milan, the newly commissioned units will be charged through both a pantograph and plug-in technology. The urban infrastructure has been optimized to allow regular recharging using chargers placed along the route, ensuring a practically unlimited all-day driving range.
