Solutions for your city

Efficient and responsible public transport requires a holistic and long-term approach. Volvo’s vision is to provide pioneering transport solutions, and our City Mobility offer is unsurpassed. Even so, first-class vehicles are a basic prerequisite. Volvo offers a comprehensive range of city and intercity buses. Our range of electrified city buses allow operation with substantially reduced emissions and noise levels – even in sensitive areas and restricted zones.

City growth is the engine of social progress and transport is crucial. Many cities suffer from severe congestion and the noise and pollution problem that come with it. The transition from commuting by car to public transport is a given solution. Volvo is dedicated to developing and supplying pioneering sustainable solutions to meet these demands.

Electromobility is a cornerstone in this work, since it allows silent and emission-free operation in sensitive and environmentally threatened areas. Furthermore, Bus Rapid Transit systems can add new life to a congested and crammed city centre by providing the capacity the city needs for further prosperity. These are examples of Volvo's pioneering solutions for sustainabilty – solutions that really can make a difference.

Economy and the environment

Economy and the environment

When Volvo first presented hybrid buses a decade ago it was assumed that some 20% of fuel could be saved. This would give substantial environmental benefits and cost savings. When reports started to reach us we instead saw savings of 25%, then 30% and even 40%. Our hybrid technology started to pay back from day one.

The introduction of the Volvo 7900 Electric Hybrid took electromobility one step further. 75% less fuel, but perhaps even more important, it could operate silently and with zero emissions. The cost of noise to society is often severely under-estimated. New regulations governing noise for public health reasons means dramatic cost increases, but with electrified buses much of this can be avoided.

The future is here and now

Today Volvo offers vehicles for every city that values environmental improvement and mobility service level. At the forefront we can line up the new Volvo 7900 Electric with high capacity and top uptime. Energy savings of up to 80% are fully possible, and silent operation makes it possible to operate where it was previously impossible. Even indoors, in residential areas, at night. We want buses to go where people want to go.

Volvo also works as a development partner for PTAs and city planners. Efficient and affordable infrastructure is an important factor in city mobility. So too is the operational support we can give the operators and the city. Volvo’s turn-key solution reduces the need for investments and instead provides the requested capacity at a specified cost per kilometre.
