Volvo delivers new hybrid buses to Luxembourg

Posted on October 29, 2008

 Sales-Lentz, Luxembourg’s largest travel and transport company, has ordered six Volvo 7700 hybrid buses.

The buses will be used in normal route traffic in and around Luxembourg City, preferably on stretches with frequent stops so that the hybrid technology can be fully optimized.

The first bus will be delivered to Sales-Lentz in autumn 2009, and the other five in 2010 when series production begins.
