The first electric buses will reach Cluj in late April

The first electric buses in Cluj will arrive at the end of April. Cluj is the first city that has passed ev bus testing. Local authorities have concluded an agreement last year to supply 30 electric buses with the Polish Solaris company, with the first 11 being provided at the end of the month.

The price of an electric bus is 500,000 euros, excluding VAT, and funding is provided from various sources. Thus, the first 11 vehicles are financed by the Government of Switzerland (85%) and the local budget by 15%, with the rest of the buses being purchased with European and local funds. Buses will have a range of 105 kilometers and a five-year warranty.

Maintenance costs and spare parts will also be provided by the producing company. The model bought by the municipality of Cluj Napoca will also have wi-fi, and the charging will be done in 13 slow and fast charging stations: slow charging will take 6 hours and the fast one will only take 10 minutes at 750V DC / 400 A.
