Following a successful trial, Arriva Slovenia launched its very first electric bus in the seaside town of Koper – a sustainable municipality that’s keen to reduce road traffic. The eco-electric minibus has solar panels and can take up to 27 locals and tourists.
Working with the equally eco-minded municipality of Jesenice, Arriva Slovenia also developed a pilot with a MAN Lion’s City Hybrid: the country’s first hybrid bus. It consumes up to 30% less fuel p.a., and reduces CO2 emissions by up to 24 tonnes a year which is twice as much as conventional diesel vehicles. Noise emissions are also lower – a plus for quality of life in urban centres.
