Focus on cost-efficient solutions

In the bus industry, focus remains on developing cost-efficient transport solutions and reducing energy consumption and the impact on the environment. It is about lower fuel consumption, alternative fuels and alternative energy sources.

During the year, Volvo Buses began delivering buses that comply with the tough Euro V emission requirements in Europe and EPA2010 in North America, including buses with the new 13-liter engine. The response from customers has been very positive, both in terms of improved performance and reduced fuel consumption.
