The interest for a new Volvo has never been higher, I have been told by colleagues that been longer in the bus business.
At the Swedish fare for public transports “Persontrafik”, Håkan Karlsson, CEO for Volvo Bus Corporation and the Swedish Minister for Infrastructure, Åsa Torstensson, presented our new hybrid bus for the visitors.
It was the largest crowd I ever seen in front of a bus! The minister spoke about the importance of saving energy, and congratulated us to the perfect timing.
I contributed to the seminar series and gave a lecture on hybrid bus technology with emphasis on the environmental advantage. My colleague, Peter Danielsson, gave a presentation of high capacity buses.
