Volvo Buses future electromobility - plug in hybrid

Plug in to the future

Volvo’s hybrid buses have been extremely successful, offering higher reliability than other makers’ vehicles – regardless of driveline – and fuel savings of up to 40%.

For us at Volvo this is only the beginning. At our research centres new solutions are constantly under evaluation. The Plug-in hybrid is the next step. In early 2013, Volvo Buses will run field tests for plug-in hybrid buses in Gothenburg, Sweden.
In cities with sufficient infrastructure we already operate fully electric vehicles powered by battery or super-capacitor. Local infrastructure and varying traffic prerequisites create the need for different solutions.

Volvo’s global presence and regional-based development centres make us a reliable and capable partner in the development of tomorrow’s public transport.
