Some say the future of public transport is all about hybrids and electromobility. For us at Volvo Buses it’s not the future, it’s already here and now. And that is what we’ll show at UITP, together with our pioneering products and services that take you far beyond Euro 6 legislation.
The new hybrid family member - the Volvo 7900 Articulated Hybrid - our new, fuel efficient Euro 6 engine line and the important work of Volvo's Bus Key Technicians are presented in this issue of our customer magazine On the Move. Available in 7 languages!

Tomorrow’s bus is already here – silent, cleaner and with dramatically lower fuel consumption. Volvo Buses’ new plug-in hybrid buses will hit the streets of Gothenburg, Sweden in May as part of a field test. The innovative technology will facilitate a reduction in fuel consumption by a full 75% compared with current diesel buses.
Lower sales volumes contributed to an operating loss of SEK 88 M in the first quarter 2013. Order intake in the first quarter totaled 2,109 buses, which was 6% higher than the same period last year. Strategic orders have been secured.
Volvo Buses will now strengthen its model program with a new articulated bus with hybrid technology. The Volvo 7900 Articulated Hybrid bus will have capacity for 154 passengers and up to 30% lower fuel consumption than the current diesel model.
