Volvo Buses



Charging & Batteries Volvo 7900 Electric

Charging flexibility is key for efficient operational planning. Volvo offers battery charging technologies that allows you to combine and change your charging methods. The buses can also be equipped with different numbers of batteries to suit the individual operation, depending on passenger capacity needs and requested driving range between charging.

Charging flexibility

All routes are different. Distance, capacity need, climate and topography set the prerequisites. That’s why Volvo offers ultimate charging flexibility. Our range of electric buses are ready for quick high-power charging on route, as well as manually operated depot charging via CCS cable. This way you can optimise charging times and power needs and tailor charging patterns to suit your schedules and your fleet logistics.

Depot charging

A Volvo 7900 Electric can be manually charged using a CCS cable in the depot, during breaks, off-peak or at night. The buses come with a charging plug-in point at the front as standard but can also be equipped with a plug-in socket on the right side, front or rear, for added flexibility.

Pantograph – up or down

Flexibility and interoperability are cornerstones in efficient public transport operation. The Volvo 7900 Electric can be specified with a roof-mounted charging pantograph, instead of the OppCharge roof rails. Giving operators freedom of choice.
