Re: London gets All-New Hybrid Double-Deckers
Volvo double-deckers outperforms competition in London!
"The 26 buses that Arriva operates along this route use a diesel-hybrid powertrain that, according to Edward Jobson, head of environmental affairs at Volvo Buses, saves Transport for London (which contracts out to Arriva) 34 percent in fuel costs compared to traditional buses. TfL is running tests using a variety of buses from different companies, and Jobson said the next-closest offers reductions of 27 percent. All told, Arriva uses 46 of Volvo's double-decker hybrid buses."
