Bus manufacturer Solaris presented its hydrogen bus for the first time in Poland yesterday.
The Solaris Urbino 12 is completely emission free and transforms hydrogen in a fuel cell into electricity which, in turn, propels the driveline.
Fitted with a state-of-the-art fuel cell of 60kW, which acts as a miniature hydrogen power plant on board the vehicle, the sole byproducts generated during the operation are heat and steam.
The bus will be capable of covering up to 350km on a single refill.
Solaris presented the bus to the Polish public in Poznan following tests by carriers in Austria and Italy in August.
The Solaris Urbino 12 was unveiled during the Global Public Transport Summit UITP in Stockholm, Sweden in June.
