Opbrid Bůsbaar Begins Charging Volvo Plug-In Hybrid Buses in Gothenburg, Sweden

The first charge of the new Volvo 7900 Plug-In Hybrid bus has just been completed successfully at Redbergsplatsen in downtown Gothenburg. The Opbrid Bůsbaar Ultra-fast charging station installed at each end of the #60 bus route supplies electricity to the new Volvo Plug-in Hybrid Bus to enable quiet, emission-free electric-only driving for the majority of the route.

Gothenburg, Sweden (PRWEB) May 14, 2013

Göteborg Energi, the electricity provider for the City of Gothenburg, today shows for the first time its new Opbrid Busbaar charging station installed at Redbergsplatsen. The Opbrid Busbaar charging station will charge three new Volvo 7900 Plug-In Hybrid buses for 5-8 minutes at each end of the #60 bus line.
These new Volvo plug-in hybrid buses run completely silently and emissions-free for the majority of the route. Göteborg Energi will supply renewable electricity from its nearby wind turbines to power the buses, with the result being an exciting new form of sustainable transportation.
“Right now, the normal Volvo hybrid buses turn off their motor at a bus stop, then the diesel roars back to life after only a few seconds of driving. In contrast, the new Plug-in hybrid bus continues on silently on electricity for most of the route. It really is a dramatic difference,” says Roger Bedell, CEO, Opbrid SL.
