URSUS CITY SMILE FUEL CELL BUS AT BUSWORLD EUROPE
It was the second bus on this exhibition which was equipped with the HyMove hydrogen fuel cell. The Polish bus manufacturer Ursus Bus developed the bus in co-operation with the Dutch fuel cell manufacturer.
Ursus has added to their product range the Ursus City Smile Fuel Cell bus, which is now ready for production. The hydrogen-powered bus combines the advantages of diesel and electric vehicles into a state-of-the-art, eco-conscious design. A pair of efficient fuel cell modules uses hydrogen from the roof-mounted tanks to automatically charge the main batteries, which results in at least 450-kilometer range, thus allowing the bus to operate for a whole day without recharging or refueling (which takes only about ten minutes). All the comfort of an electric vehicle – low noise and vibration, excellent ride smoothness – is retained thanks to fuel cells’ quiet operation. Ursus hydrogen bus is a truly eco-friendly solution for city transport, since – – in addition to zero emissions – it doesn’t require multiple sets of heavy and expensive batteries. A compact battery pack is sufficient.
Ursus Bus is located in Lublin, Poland.Ursus Bus is a new company that combines and utilizes the experience of both its mother companies: Ursus S.A. and AMZ-Kutno S.A.
