Solaris Urbino 18 Hybrid – the first hybrid drive bus in Switzerland.

On the 26th of June 2007, the first hybrid drive bus in Switzerland was ceremoniously taken into operation in the Swiss town of Lenzburg. The 18 meter long Solaris Urbino Hybrid had been built in the small western Polish town of Bolechowo for one of the largest transportation companies of Switzerland, the privately owned Eurobus.

On the 26th of June, exactly at 11.25 am, the general manager of the Eurobus group, Mr. Andreas Meier, opened the delivery ceremony of the innovative city bus Solaris Urbino 18 Hybrid. Among the guests were Mr. Franz Brun, president of traffic commission of the National Assembly, Ms. Christina Spörry, director of the traffic branch of the Department of Construction, Traffic and Environment of the Aarau canton, and Mr. Krzysztof Olszewski, chairman of the executive board of Solaris Bus & Coach. The Swiss government representatives attach great importance to the improvement of the environmental quality by employing innovative means of transportation. Accordingly, Switzerland is the first European country in which means of public transportation, including buses, are obligatorily to be equipped with CRT particle filters.

Following the official part, the hybrid bus was presented in operation. During the premiere tour with the Solaris Urbino 18, passengers had the opportunity to convince themselves of the advantages of the hybrid drive – the smooth start, the unobtrusive change of gears, the dynamic acceleration, through to the effective braking, and all this at a significantly lower noise level.

The innovative Solaris Urbino Hybrid had been presented to the general public for the first time on the occasion of the IAA utility vehicles 2006 in Hannover. The Dresden municipal transportation company DVB AG purchased the first unit. There, it is operated every day on one line of the transportation network. The operation parameters, which are constantly being recorded, are used to optimize the hybrid drive systems.

The delivery of the first hybrid bus to Switzerland has affirmed the position of the Polish bus manufacturer on the Swiss market. The Solaris buses have begun to conquer the Swiss market only five years ago. Meanwhile, there are 110 Solaris-made vehicles are in operation there. In the record year 2004, a total of 41 vehicles were delivered to six Swiss customers.
