Urbino 12 CNG

The first edition of the 12-metre Urbino CNG uses the advantages of the new-generation Solaris, such as its light frame and state-of-the-art driveline, as well as the commodious and comfortable passenger space. The drive unit of the new Urbino 12 CNG is a Cummins ISLG engine producing 320 horsepower and meeting the Euro6 norm, and in the presented vehicle it is coupled with a VOITH Diwa6 gearbox. What is new about this model is the installation of a CNG cylinder. The composite tanks are fitted alongside rather then crosswise on the roof, as had been the case in the former Urbino version. The new gas tank construction technology allows to reduce the weight by up to 80 kilograms depending on the configuration. What is more, thanks to locating it alongside the bus, it was possible to reduce the number of cylinder valves. The model presented at the fair boasts gas tanks of a volume of 1575 l. The producer offers also bigger cylinders, containing 1875 litres, or smaller, 1260-litre ones. Thanks to this option the bus can be tailor-made to the needs of carriers. The new gas-fuelled Solaris of the new generation has a gas filler valve in the same spot as the diesel engine counterpart has its filling unit. That is why neither the seat layout, nor the interior of the gas-fuelled bus, nor even the layout of the driver’s compartment have been changed compared to diesel buses. Just like in other models of the new generation Solaris, the gas bus stands out thanks to its spacious and bright interior, where modern solutions already known from other Solaris vehicles have been used, such as LED lighting, efficient air-conditioning or USB chargers, which make the journey by this bus extremely comfortable. The bus contains 33 seats, 16 of which are accessible from the low floor.
