For the first time in Australia, Volvo Buses is displaying a complete Volvo B5RLE Hybrid city bus at the Australian Bus and Coach show, during 25.-26.9. Delegates are also treated to technical workshops on Volvo hybrid technology during both exhibition days.

While Volvo launched its first hybrid in Asia-Pacific in January this year, globally the company has enjoyed increasing success with over 1,000 hybrid buses sold worldwide since its commercial production of hybrid buses began in 2010.

 

”Globally, Volvo hybrid technology has proven to save significant levels of fuel consumption, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by similar amounts,” said Sean Copeland, General manager of Volvo Bus Australia.

“Hybrid technology is an important option on the road for reducing vehicle emissions. As the technology continues to develop, we expect demand to keep growing worldwide."

To find out more, join the Volvo Bus hybrid presentations at 11:00am in the theathrette, located in the Dome foyer, during the Australian Bus and Coach show or visit Volvo at stand 108.
