Hybrid vehicles from Volvo Group exceed expectations

The Volvo Group’s proprietarily developed platform for hybrid operation of heavy vehicles has been installed in several different types of vehicles and has been used to propel the Group’s buses in traffic operations in Göteborg, Sweden and London, England. The experiences gained to date from the Group’s parallel hybrid technology indicate excellent fuel savings. To date, the Volvo Group has developed about 20 different hybrid vehicles based on the Group’s hybrid solution, including wheel loaders, buses and refuse collection trucks.
