Volvo Buses


Electric buses

Volvo’s offering for electrified public transport includes much more than the buses, although they are the visible, and audible, sign of a huge paradigm shift. In addition Volvo provides the knowledge, experience and services needed for a smooth and responsible transition into a new era of public transport.

Go electric with Volvo

When a city decides to go electric, the change has implications on much more than replacing vehicles. Energy supply, daily maintenance, charging strategy and vehicle deployment planning are just a couple of the areas subject to new prerequisites. With Volvo as a partner, you benefit from our thorough understanding of public transport, and our processes for a controlled and swift implementation.

How to do it

The migration from diesel-powered public transport to electric buses can be a complex task. With Volvo you get a route-by-route optimized solution. We have long experience of how to simulate different routes and how to calculate charging sequences for maximum availability and efficiency. We also have long experience of working together with charging providers to ensure the optimum placement and implement of charging stations.

Efficient charging

All routes are different. Distance, capacity need, climate and topography set the prerequisites. That's why Volvo offers various methods to provide maximum charging flexibility. They can also be specified with optimized energy storage capacity. This way you can optimise charging times and power needs to suit your schedules and your fleet logistics.

Turnkey solutions

Volvo Turnkey is an all-inclusive solution encompassing vehicles, battery contract, repair and maintenance, bus monitoring and project management. Volvo takes care of all maintenance for both the vehicles and their batteries at a fixed monthly cost. What you get is guaranteed operation at a specified cost per km.

E-mobility for Zero Cities

At Volvo Buses we have a vision of the Zero City, where emissions, accidents, congestion and noise will cease to bother the citizens. We know that many share this vision and we work in close co-operation with cities, authorities and operators. We also know that even if the ultimate Zero City is more than a day’s ride away we can make significant improvements – today, tomorrow and every day ahead of us. That’s why we provide solutions for all stages of that journey.

Circularity and sustainability

Environmental care is one of our core values. To us it is more than a grand statement, it is a commitment and an investment. We are convinced that our dedication and our research efforts will prove to be highly beneficial to us, to our customers and to the planet we live on.

Battery second life

The energy storage system of a Volvo bus has a long service life. Beyond that, the batteries can be used in other applications such as energy banks in apartment complexes, and finally the materials can be efficiently recycled.
