Volvo sells eight hybrid buses to Australia
Volvo Buses has received an order for eight hybrids in Australia, the biggest order to date in this market. Latrobe Valley Bus Lines in southeast Australia has ordered eight single-deck Euro 6 hybrid chassis from Volvo.
The transport company Latrobe Valley Bus Lines (LVBL), based east of Melbourne, has ordered eight B5LH hybrid buses for its Latrobe Valley fleet. The order follows a successful 12 month trial of a Volvo hybrid. The hybrids, to be bodied locally in Melbourne by Volgren, will be delivered over the next three years, with the first three going into service in 2018.
