Solaris has won an order for 14 bi-articulated electric buses. Urbino 24 electric in the MetroStyle version will improve public transport in the Danish city of Aalborg, operated by Tide Bus Danmark, the manufacturer said. The order from Denmark is the first ever for this electric bi-articulated bus.
“This order is unique in Europe, both due to the length of the vehicles and their specific design. Solaris bi-articulated electric buses will handle passenger traffic in Aalborg, a Danish city on the Jutland Peninsula. Tide Bus Danmark has placed an order for 14 double-articulated electric buses in the MetroStyle version. These are 24-meter vehicles with a special design, specially designed to support Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) public transport systems. This is an unprecedented order, both in terms of the length of the vehicles and the choice of the designer MetroStyle generation, ”the release stressed.
“We are especially happy to hear that Denmark will be the first country to which we will deliver the Urbino 24 MetroStyle. It is a generation of buses with a large passenger capacity and unique design, perfectly matching the character of modern cities. I am convinced that the cooperation with Tide Bus Danmark will open a new chapter in our activities supporting sustainable urban transport, ”added Petros Spinaris board member.
