For a week Solaris Urbino 12 will travel different routes in the city, to convince local authorities that an effective solution for urban public transport.

It is ideal for the regerative breaking system using the bus or highly elevated route as Brasov-Poiana Brasov .

The bus has a range of 200 kilometers and declared a price of 450,000 euros. But beyond the financial side it raises the issue of infrastructure necessary for charging such a fleet.
