Last week the Innovation Line 109 was inaugurated in Hamburg. Volvo 7900 Electric Hybrid / Plug-in was in pole position (see video).
The event was hosted by Hamburg Mayor Olaf Scholz who is strongly driving the implementation of sustainable Public Transports in Hamburg.

The city of Hamburg has established the target: from 2020, only emission-free buses should be acquired by the city. Volvo is determined to offer buses that meets the requirements of Hamburg.
I claim that the 7900 Electric Hybrid bus is the most versatile bus on the market Electric for emission free drive and hybrid where work-horse performance is required.
