According to the town hall: “One of the objectives of this project is to carry out pilot tests of buses with new cleaner technologies to analyse the technical feasibility and technological evolution, and thus obtain a complete analysis of the technology that can best adapt to each city, depending on different parameters (environmental conditions, geometry of transport lines, service provision conditions, climate), etc.”

The URBINO 12 model is powered by electricity, and therefore has zero emissions. It can travel approximately 300 km per each full charge, which takes 4.5 hours.
