Huge fuel economy saving for plug-in hybrid bus

The significance of fuel economy savings with plug-in hybrid buses have been revealed after a series of field tests in Gothenburg.

According to the testing, Volvo’s plug-in hybrid bus is capable of reducing fuel consumption by 81 per cent compared to a comparable Euro 5 diesel bus. Overall energy consumption (that’s diesel plus electricity) is cut by 61 per cent.

The field test began in June this year and involved three buses that were rapidly recharged at terminals: making it possible fo them to run primarily with electricity for the bulk of the route.
