Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen
The exceptionally ecological and the most advanced technologically Solaris product Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen is the result of consistent investments of the producer in zero-emission transport means.
The biggest challenge today from the point of view of a user is the currently high cost of hydrogen buses, as well as the relatively small number of hydrogen filling stations – there are currently about 300 such stations in Europe, including facilities that have
already been planned, but are not operational yet. One may, however, expect that it will be possible to overcome these two factors over the next few years, among others
thanks to subsidising programmes targeting that technology.
KurzbeschreibungSolaris Urbino 12 hydrogen is a emission-free bus, which is powered by hydrogen fuel cell. This incredibly innovated vehicle, offers a drive range up to 350 km while preserving all advantages of an electric engine. The bus is characterised especially by a low level of noise and lack of vibrations while moving. Moreover, the only product of the chemical reaction, which takes place in the hydrogen fuel cell is water. A refilling time takes couple of minutes, and thus will ensure the flexibility and elasticity to the vehicle’s operator.
Sharply outlined body line, its comfortable interior but most importantly ecological drive guarantee novelty in the industry as well as uniqueness of an travelling experience not only for drivers but also passengers of existing metropolises.
The premiere of this vehicle was taking place during International Association of Public Transport UITP in Stockholm on 09-12 June 2019.

The Urbino 12 hydrogen has already scored first buyers. At the end of May last year, transport firm SASA Bolzano ordered 12 units of the hydrogen bus model made by Solaris, to be delivered in 2021. In March this year, the Wuppertal-based operator WSW Mobil GmbH, which is an affiliated company of transport association Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr (VRR), placed an order for 25 hydrogen-fuelled Solaris buses. A contract for the delivery of 20 Solaris Urbino 12 hydrogen buses was signed with the operator Connexxion providing transport services for South Holland province.
