Belgian cities invest in electric hybrid bus fleets


The Belgian cities of Charleroi and Namur have together ordered 90 Volvo 7900 Electric Hybrid buses as well as 12 charging stations. The order was made through public transport company TEC Group and is Volvo Buses’ largest ever for complete solutions for electric buses.

“This order is very significant for Volvo Buses for two main reasons; it is the first order of electric hybrids on such a large scale and secondly it includes the charging infrastructure and associated services,” Bas Dubois, Director France Benelux, Volvo Buses, told Cities Today. “Uniquely these buses have a driveline that is able to have full electric propulsion as well as a hybrid propulsion that can be steered through zone management, which offers flexibility to the operator.”
