Solaris has delivered 180 hydrogen buses by the end of 2023 and received orders for 535 hydrogen-powered vehicles

The increase in the number of hydrogen buses sold last year clearly demonstrates the growing interest in this technology as more and more operators recognize it as a target solution for their public transport systems, the Solaris announced. By the end of 2023, Solaris has delivered a total of 180 hydrogen buses to the market, consolidating its position as the European leader in this segment. The fact that 44.5% of all hydrogen buses registered in Europe in 2023 are Solaris vehicles is evidence of the company’s dominance in this field.

There is every indication that this trend will continue. This is also reflected in the large number of new orders Solaris has received for the coming years. By the end of 2023, the company has received orders for 535 hydrogen-powered vehicles, with delivery dates ranging from 2024 to 2026. To meet the growing demand and increase production capacity, Solaris has just inaugurated a new hall dedicated to the production of hydrogen vehicles. This state-of-the-art facility will become the heart of the company’s hydrogen and CNG bus production, underlining its commitment to promoting green transport solutions.

In 2023, Solaris acquired and also delivered (partially or fully) a number of significant contracts:

  • In April, Solaris delivered 183 Urbino articulated electric buses to Oslo, the largest order in the company’s history.
