Leading European bus manufacturer Solaris has placed an order for 120 engines with DAF Components. The PACCAR MX-11 Euro 6 engines will be delivered in combination with DAF’s compact Emission After-treatment System (EAS) and are intended for use in the new Urbino nU18 articulated bus, which will soon be introduced in Israel for public transport in and around Nazareth and Jerusalem.

PACCAR Inc. owned DAF Components is a leading independent supplier of components, such as engines, axles and cabs, that are used all over the world by manufacturers of buses, coaches and specialised vehicles in the agricultural and industrial sectors.  Excellent drivability, comfortable and maximum usability are among the attributes of these drivetrains.

The 120 PACCAR MX-11 engines ordered by Solaris offer 370hp/270kW and maximum torque values of 1,900 Nm at 900 rpm. A flat torque curve ensures a smooth drive and maximum passenger comfort. Solaris also chose the PACCAR engines because of their unparalleled reliability and extremely low maintenance costs. In addition, the maintenance schedule of only one service interval per year ensures maximum usability of the vehicles.

500 Solaris buses already equipped with PACCAR engines in Israel 

Solaris has been supplying buses for urban and regional transport in Israel for many years. Due to the new order, the number of Solaris buses equipped with a PACCAR engine that have been delivered to Israel has passed the 500 mark. Maintenance of the articulated buses will be carried out by dealers affiliated to the DAF importer Tashtit, together with the Solaris importer Afifi.
