Volvo receives largest ever order for hybrid buses

Volvo Buses’ North American subsidiary, Nova Bus, has received an order for 497 hybrid buses from the transit authorities in Quebec in Canada – the single largest order for hybrid vehicles for the Volvo Group to date.

The order encompasses an option for a further 1,028 vehicles. Deliveries will take place 2020-2025.

With a total of more than 5,500 electric buses sold world over (4,000 under the Volvo brand and 1,500 under the Nova Bus brand excluding the new order), Volvo Buses is one of the world leaders in the fast-expanding market of electrified buses.

Nova Bus, has now been awarded the collective contract for Quebec’s transit authorities co-ordinated by ATUQ (Association du transport urbain du Québec).

Says Håkan Agnevall, President Volvo Buses: “We are very proud of this recognition of our electro-mobility offering and the largest order to date for electrified vehicles to the Volvo Group.

“The order underlines the strong relationship that ATUQ, Nova Bus and Volvo have developed over the years. Our company’s vision is to support cities meeting the urban challenges of air quality, congestion and noise by shifting to sustainable public transport.

“It is very encouraging to be a partner of the province of Quebec on this journey”.
