Cities worldwide are facing the same challenge: how to grow in a sustainable way. Public transport plays a key role here. We therefore strive to help create the cities of the future, free from congestion, emissions and noise. And our vision is clear: we shall become the world leader in sustainable transport solutions.
Volvo is the world leader in electromobility, with more than 4200 hybrid and electric hybrid buses sold around the world. Using electricity instead of fossil fuel gives immediate and long-term positive effects on the environment, and on the people’s quality of life.
Our chassis factory in Borås, Sweden, is the first bus plant solely powered by renewable energy. With district heating from biofuels and on-site vehicles running on HVO and fossil-free hydroelectricity, the factory’s overall energy consumption has been reduced by 15%. And this work goes on. We strive for a zero carbon footprint and we’re getting closer day by day.
