Nova Bus receives 475 hybrid bus order

Posted on February 14, 2013

Nova Bus received an order for 475 hybrid buses from Quebec, Canada. This is the single largest order for hybrid vehicles that the Volvo Group has ever signed to date. The buses are scheduled for delivery at the beginning of 2014. The order also encompasses an option for a further 1,200 vehicles.

The customer, ATUQ, is a consortium consisting of the province’s nine transit authorities.

“This order underlines the strong relationship ATUQ and Nova Bus have developed over the years,” said Jean-Pierre Baracat, president of Nova Bus. “ATUQ has renewed its confidence in our vehicles once again, and we are glad to continue to work together to further enhance transit services in our communities.”

Compared with conventional diesel-powered buses, the Nova LFS HEV offers approximately 30% lower fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. In parallel with the continued enhancement of hybrid technology, Nova Bus is working on the development of other environmentally optimized solutions, such as plug-in hybrids and all-electric buses.
