What we presented

New global e-mobility offer

Volvo Buses expands its successful electromobility offer worldwide. With the launch of the new Volvo BZL Electric chassis, Volvo Buses can provide a solid platform for sustainable and efficient public transport in cities around the world, and reliable and profitable operations for our customers. “We are committed to lead the transformation of our industry towards a more sustainable future. With the launch of the new Volvo BZL Electric, our ambition is to offer the world’s most responsible electric bus systems. We do it by going beyond the expected in the fields of sustainability, safety and reliability,” said Anna Westerberg, President of Volvo Buses, at the launch event.

Volvo BZL Electric

The new Volvo BZL Electric is based on proven and successful technologies already implemented in Europe. All the chassis and driveline components are developed and manufactured by Volvo, then we partner up with bodybuilders around the world to safeguard the premium qualities of our buses. The driveline can be configured as a single or dual motor unit with a power output of no less than 540 hp. This makes the Volvo BZL Electric an untiring hill climber and will allow for swift and smooth operation. The Volvo BZL Electric is designed for charging flexibility by hardware interfaces for both OppCharge high-power charging on route as well as CCS charging in the depot.
