Fuel efficiency

Impressive fuel savings from day one

The Volvo B5L Hybrid's technology is the most fuel efficient on the market. Widely proven in years of commercial operation, the B5L Hybrid has reported savings in the range of 30 - 40%.

Air conditioning, power steering and brakes are a few features that are electrically powered in the Volvo B5L Hybrid. This not only helps save fuel, but also means the bus is fully operational even when the diesel engine is switched off.

Environmental performance

Emissions, noise, air quality, and health

The best way to cut emissions is to cut fuel consumption, which is how Volvo's hybrid technology offers environmental performance with a clear business upside.

The Volvo B5L Hybrid's driveline is a clean power package, with the diesel engine's 240 hp boosted by an additional 110 kW pure electric power.

Air quality is a major health issue in many cities, and with Volvo's unique parallel hybrid technology in the B5L Hybrid Euro 6 version, nitrogen oxides and harmful particulates can be reduced by more than 50%.

Volvo's hybrid technology also contributes to reduced noise, for both passengers and in the city environment. Limited idling at the bus stop, silent take-off in electric mode and battery-powered auxiliaries reduce disturbing noise to a minimum.
