With Volvo Electric Hybrids your city can start a new era in public transport. Improved service level and access to areas previously off-limits are just some of the benefits for the city’s residents.

Energy savings

A Volvo 7900 Electric Hybrid cuts diesel fuel consumption by 75% – on average. The rest of the power needed comes from energy recovery and from charging at the terminus. The total energy saving is on average 60%! 

Silence is golden

Noise is rapidly increasing in importance in the urban agenda and causes massive costs for society. Electric hybrids run in electric mode for 70% of the route, on average. You can hear the difference.

Let your city breathe

In electric mode the Volvo 7900 Electric Hybrid produces zero emissions. This enables operation in sensitive areas and even indoor terminals. Not to mention the long-term health effects.

A new travelling experience

On board a Volvo 7900 Electric Hybrid you can talk to each other in a normal voice, listen to music at less than full volume – or just enjoy the quiet ride. Pure passenger pleasure.
