The Volvo 7900 Electric allows you to think different. Clean and silent, it opens up a whole new perspective on city planning and service to your citizens. You will be able to create routes never taken before, even with indoor stops in a mall or railway station. You will reduce noise in busy areas, turning them into quality areas. Imagine that you could take people all the way to the places where they really want to go. 

Full operational flexibility

All routes are different. Distance, capacity need, climate and topography set the prerequisites.
That’s why Volvo offers ultimate charging flexibility, where energy capacity as well as charging
method, time and power are parameters. You can adapt the charging patterns to your
schedules and your fleet logistics. Simply make use of the opportunities available in your
operation. With the Volvo 7900 Electric you can choose, combine and change your charging
method at any time.
