The vehicles were handed over on December 1, 2023.

Replacing the MZK rolling stock is one of the main investment goals of the Zamość local government, as it is expected to bring measurable social and economic, but also ecological benefits. For this historic city of over 60,000 inhabitants, whose old town was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1992, care for the climate and environment is one of the determinants of action towards sustainable development. – said Andrzej Wnuk, president of Zamość.

The twelve-meter Lion’s City 12 E models are powered by an electric motor placed longitudinally behind the drive axle with a rated power of 160 kW, and the energy is stored in large batteries with a capacity of 400 kWh.
