The weight has been significantly reduced by 550 kg resulting in 1.5 percent lower fuel consumption.
The bus is lighter than its predecessor Volvo 7700, which is made of steel. With the body structure and roof made of aluminum, the weight has been significantly reduced by 550 kg resulting in 1.5 percent lower fuel consumption.
