For the First Time! Leading Low-carbon Travel in Poland with Zero Emissions
To further improve air quality, in recent years, Europe has continued to promote carbon emission control plans and increased efforts to encourage green travel. Poland, one of the fastest growing countries in Central and Eastern Europe in recent years, has also taken an active part in the initiative to promote green travel.
As the first city to adopt pure electric buses, Polkovice has been at the forefront of the promotion of electric buses in Poland. Due to concerns about the local environment and the health of residents, Polkovice plans to implement a low-emission or zero-emission upgrade program for half of the city’s buses, according to the Governor Cezary Przy. The introduction of nine Yutong E10 pure electric buses is an important manifestation of the city’s zero-emission plan.
“Electric transportation will be one of our core measures. Electric travel will not only provide higher comfort for passengers, but also reduce carbon emissions and improve air quality and the health of residents,” said Łukasz Puźniecki, the mayor of Polkovice.
Provincial Councillor Tymoteusz Myrda said, “The introduction of new electric buses is a great event for Polkovice and its residents. I hope to further promote the electrification of buses, increase investment and purchase more electric buses to improve air quality, passenger comfort and travel safety.”

As the first batch of Chinese pure electric buses to enter Poland, the Yutong E10 is 10.9 meters long and has a maximum capacity of 81 passengers, which is extremely suitable for the operation needs of the city of Polkovice. In terms of detail design, the E10 is equipped with handicap-friendly facilities. The interior space, seats and color matching of the vehicle are designed in accordance with European standards and styles. Among them, through the optimization of material selection and customized design, the seats can fully meet the stringent requirements of “comfortable, wear-resistant, anti-cutting, and easy to clean” put forward by the client. Moreover, the vehicle tags, procedures and so on are all in Polish, greatly improving the convenience of local use of the vehicle.
Secondly, to fully meet the demand of local actual use, Yutong also carefully considered the specific operating routes and customer requirements, and made a variety of customization to the E10. The vehicle is equipped with a 350kWh large-capacity battery with a maximum driving range of 400km. The energy consumption of the vehicle is 75 kWh / 100km. Its energy consumption level is the best of all the models in competition at the time. The application of continuously variable speed drive system, electric power steering system and the most advanced noise reduction technology will also bring more comfortable and greener travel experience to local residents.

Although the quantity is small, it is the first batch order of pure electric bus in Poland. As a European country, Polish bus operators have a lot to choose from: MAN, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Scania --- multinational brands with the label of high-end product; Meanwhile, the European market is also the most intense battlefield for high-end bus brands such as MAN, Mercedes-Benz and Volvo. Then why is the first batch of pure electric buses purchased by Poland from China’s Yutong?
