... Poland is the largest exporter of electric buses in the EU?
Electric buses are becoming a Polish export specialty. According to CSO data, in 2018 foreign customers purchased 131 electric buses in Poland for a total amount of PLN 231,8 million. For comparison: only 24 vehicles were sold last year, worth PLN 39,6 million. Poland sells electric buses mainly in European Union countries.

The prospects for Polish export of electric buses are promising. Governments of many countries and local authorities increasingly focus on protecting the climate and health of their citizens, introducing, among others, regulations promoting vehicles with reduced environmental impact and energy consumption. It also supports local initiatives in the creation of low and ultra-low emission zones, and encourages the introduction of electric buses in cities. As a result, more and more urban agglomerations in Europe (especially in Great Britain, France, Germany and Italy) are introducing or intending to introduce environmentally friendly, quiet and zero-emission public transport friendly to the environment and residents. In addition, forecasts for the future of the electric bus market inform about its dynamic development. According to Electric Bus Market 2013-2025, the global electric bus market will grow annually by approx. 17 percent.
