ATM Milano has ordered a further batch of electric buses as part of a framework agreement with Solaris for 250 vehicles. The first two batches, totalling 140 electric Urbino buses have been delivered, and a further order for 75 Urbino 12 electric buses is due in the second half of this year.
The framework agreement for the supply of up to 250 electric buses in total for ATM Milano is one of the largest electric contracts won by Solaris so far. The partnership between Solaris and ATM in Milan began in 2014, and has involved more than 300 vehicles, including nearly 200 trolleybuses and e-buses.
The 12m electric Urbinos will have 400kWh batteries which will be charged via a pantograph.
