Volvo Turnkey – the solution for e-mobility


Volvo Turnkey is an all-inclusive e-mobility offer and business model especially designed for operating traffic with electrified buses. It gives specified availability of fully operational vehicles at an agreed cost per kilometre. The operator benefits from improved equity and cash-flow, predictable operational cost and improved passenger satisfaction.

All-day availability

Capacity and uptime are crucial revenue factors in every bus operation. A Volvo Turnkey solution secures availability and operating time on the road, thus boosting your profitability. In compliance with your schedules and other assignments Volvo will make sure you always have the right number of vehicles ready to serve.

Financially sound

Volvo Turnkey is a business model offering simplicity and flexibility. You can choose whether your company or Volvo owns the buses and there are several leasing and financing options. You will reduce the capital employed and be in total control of your operational and maintenance costs. Add to that an improvement in cashflow and equity, and it’s easy to see the business upside of Volvo Turnkey.

Included in the Volvo Turnkey offer

Volvo Turnkey is a comprehensive solution encompassing vehicles, maintenance, connectivity, zone management, infrastructure and implementation.

Project management

With Volvo you get project management that ensures smooth and efficient implementation. 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 implementation of charging stations.

Go for zero in your operation

With a Volvo Turnkey contract, you can develop your operations and improve profitability. Instead of purchasing the vehicles, you develop your public transport system. This means zero investment. Plus, you maximize availability, with products and services designed to deliver zero downtime.

Zero downtime

In a turnkey solution you are assured that maintenance and service is meticulously conducted. Trained technicians, Genuine Volvo Parts and precise diagnostics make for a no-surprise daily operation, aiming for zero downtime.

Zero investment

Public transport has a significant share of a city’s finances. With a Volvo turnkey solution, the initial investment can be avoided, replaced by a periodical fee on the basis of kilometres driven.

Zero driver turnover

Recruitment and training of drivers are costly and time-consuming matters. Volvo buses offer superior ergonomics in a comfortable and adaptable workplace. Keeping driver turnover to a minimum is profitable, and experience show that it also has a positive effect on passenger satisfaction and reduces wear and tear.
