Nobina adding 55 Solaris electric buses to fleet in Stockholm region

The Swedish public transport operator Nobina Stockholm has ordered 55 Urbino 15 LE electric buses. The vehicles will be put into operation on suburban routes in the Stockholm region. Deliveries are scheduled for 2024.

The Urbino 15 LE electric buses are low-entry, tri-axle electric vehicles that can be used both as city buses and on suburban routes. The heart of the driveline will be a 240 kW central motor, powered by energy derived from Solaris High Energy batteries with a capacity of more than 550 kWh. The buses will thus be able to easily operate all day long, while at night they will be plugged in to charge.

The vehicles will also feature Mobileye Shield+ to provide maximum safety. This driver assistance system detects objects located in the blind spot of the vehicle and warns the driver using audible signals and messages on the dashboard. The Solaris Urbino 15 LE electric will also be equipped with air conditioning, the Scandinavian package that adapts them to difficult weather conditions and with additional lightning above the door, outside the bus, to facilitate the boarding and alighting of passengers at dusk.

So far, the Solaris has delivered more than 2,000 battery-powered electric buses to its clients in 21 countries. Orders for another thousand vehicles are currently being executed.
