THINKING VOLVO BUS AT COMING BUSWORLD EUROPE
At this exhibition Volvo Buses will also present a range of solutions in the field of active safety and autonomous driving, for both city buses and long-distance models. The “thinking bus” simulator will give visitors the chance to test how Volvo Dynamic Steering (VDS), the Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection System, Bus Stop Docking Concept and many other solutions work in realistic situations
With more than 3500 sold hybrids, electric hybrids and electric buses globally, Volvo Buses is continuing to develop technology for electric propulsion. At Busworld the company will for instance reveal the latest version of its all-electric offering, the Volvo 7900 Electric, together with the OppCharge charging system.
An important user of Volvo buses with an alternative driveline is Luxemburg. The first four Volvo 7900 Electric buses entered operation in early summer 2017 in the city of Differdange. Several more orders have been signed, among others with Harrogate in England and Malmö in Sweden for Volvo’s electric buses. Next year Volvo Buses is planning to test all-electric articulated buses in regular operations in the company’s home town of Gothenburg, where electrically powered 10- and 12-metre buses and electric hybrids have already long provided regular service.
