The new Volvo B5RLE Hybrid is not only the most fuel-efficient Volvo city chassis, thanks to the ability of running with the diesel engine shut off, but it’s also reliable regardless of driveline technology.
Volvo has taken a firm lead in hybrid technology, environmental performance and reliability with over 1,000 hybrid buses sold world-wide.
The Volvo Hybrid technology has proven to reduce CO2 emissions with 33 tonnes per bus at 70,000 km/yr.
According to independent reports from operators in major cities globally, the hybrid product range has also proven to be No 1 in uptime.
The Volvo B5RLEH chassis uses a parallel hybrid system combining the electric and diesel engine. Compared to a conventional diesel bus, the hybrid utilises energy otherwise wasted during braking. Add to that silent and emission-free boarding and take off, it’s a winner.
