With the Volvo B5LHC your city can start a new chapter in public transportation. Bringing all the advantages of Electric Hybrid propulsion in a high capacity double deck bus, your city’s residents can enjoy the resulting benefits of cleaner air and quieter streets.

HEAR THE DIFFERENCE

The impact of noise pollution is becoming more important from both a political and societal perspective. The B5LHC Electric hybrid is able to run in electric mode up to 7km, you can hear the difference.

PROVEN TECHNOLOGY

The outstanding performance of Volvo’s hybrid technology in city environments is already proven – not just in extensive field tests, but also through real life operation.

ALWAYS IN THE ZONE

Many cities are now looking to apply restrictions on city-centre traffic. Zero-emission zones as well as areas where noise and speed are limited are becoming increasingly commonplace. The Volvo B5LHC is an ideal vehicle solution to operate in this environment, with Volvo also able to provide the necessary tools for zone management.

WHEN HIGH CAPACITY IS NEEDED

The Volvo B5LHC provides greater capacity than a single deck hybrid, accommodating up to 88 passengers in comfort and safety.
