I can add that there is an optional doubus Solaris Trollino, that means a trolley can use an extra diesel engine.

Yes, it's the same. It means that an electric motor propels the bus. Its diesel engine is rechargering the bateries (in big simple). Already there is a second generation of Solaris Urbino Hybrid buses in production. Still we're waiting for a standard 12m wersion.

The Solaris Valletta was made in right hand drive for Malta, but it seems to have been discontinued.

very good! They look modern and are apparently increasingly more popular among European cities. Hopefully the brand will assist in building Polish industry's reputation around

Any more deals in pending?

In Ghent, Belgium. Too bad, they wore just test drives, the Ghent's Transport Autority hasn't accepted the new trolley's. The trolly line is being domished for diesel buses and a tram line, later on... It was the last trolley line in Belgium.

Let me say something about those Ostrawa DPO buses/troleys: the Solaris Trollino 15 is the first 15 meter trolley in the world. Secondly this Solaris Urbino 12 LE (not H) is the first and last Low Entry Solaris built in first/second generation. In this place the first and second geration is almost the same from look, the diffrent is only some mechanical parts. The third generation is diffrent those are for example Urbino 12 from Frankfurt on patrick's photos.

I must say these buses age very well. Even a bus produced 8-10 years ago looks pretty damn modern by today's standards. The new hybrid ones look awesome. Too bad not many cities can afford them.
