POLAND ELECTRIC BUS MARKET
Poland has a strong geographic region for exporting in Europe, a well-developed distribution network and network of local parts suppliers, including automotive companies, and it is still cost competitive.
The country’s growing fleet of electric buses bolsters Poland’s robust manufacturing base. The government’s efforts, such as the Green Public Transport, which will be introduced in 2021, are assisting the growth of the electric bus market in Poland.
The Polish National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management will provide 1.3 billion zlotys to this programme.

The preponderance of wealthy countries, as well as several emerging countries, are seeing a progressive move away from diesel-fuelled public urban transportation vehicles and toward electric cars.
Changes in the demand and supply sides of the urban transportation sector in certain countries throughout the world are required as part of the process. Poland is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of electric buses. Electric bus manufacture is on the rise, with companies like Germany’s MAN Truck and Bus recently launching production in Poland.
Solaris Bus is a leading mobiliser of the various explorer oriented electric vehicle manufacturer requirements in the market. The Electric drivetrains from Solaris Urbino are known for their silent operation and lack of local pollutants.
The Solaris High Energy batteries in the Urbino 12 electric buses have a total capacity of 250 kWh, whereas the Urbino 18 electric buses have a capacity of 400 kWh.
Pantograph or plug-in technologies will be used to recharge them. Traction motors linked with a driving axle will provide traction in both types of vehicles.
Volkswagen has been one of the most advanced solution provider in the used car requirements. The ID.Buzz’s all-electric powertrain will be available in rear-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive modes, with a range of roughly 260 miles projected.
When connected to a DC fast charger, VW claims the vehicle can charge its battery from 5% to 80% in 30 minutes. The company also intends to deploy its plug-and-charge technology, which essentially eliminates the need to unlock the charger using an app or a card.
