With the environment-friendly solar-powered SunShuttle, SOIOS responds to the growing awareness of the pollution caused by contemporary means of transport. The passenger trailers designed and build by the Dutch company SOIOS are all equipped with a2-solar’s special flat semi-transparent solar roof modules which allows the shuttle to run with the inexhaustible energy of the sun – a perfect solution to move up to 90 people or mass cargo goods in an environmentally responsible manner even in hilly areas. If necessary, batteries can be further supplemented using green AC power. The result: a surprisingly large daily range of up to 300 km (187 miles).
Being virtually maintenance-free (which applies to their engines, batteries, chassis, bodywork and interior) with excellent handling both on the road as well as off-road, these vehicles are perfect for application in amusement and holiday parks, zoos, open air museums, beach boulevards, airports and parking lots. Complying with all technical requirements and safety regulations for use on public roads, these SOIOS trains are in use already all over Europe.
