The Volvo 7900 Plug-in Hybrid bus is a development of our second series-produced hybrid bus model.
With plug-in technology we have been able to reduce both fuel consumption and emissions by up to 80%. And in electric mode noise reduction is in the range of 20 dBA.
Its predecessor has been on the market for several years and both fuel savings and reliability have been proven in commercial operation.
Our hybrid technology has shown itself to be an unbeatable solution when it comes to combining environmental improvement with performance, economy and uptime.
Test projects ongoing
Volvo Buses expects to commence commercial manufacturing of plug-in hybrids in a couple of years, and the technology is now tested in service in three buses in Gothenburg.
