Volvo Electric Bus Needed For Klang Valley
Volvo’s new Electric Hybrid bus, reduces fuel consumption by 75 percent compared to conventional diesel buses. ABB and Volvo have contributed with their respective expertise in power grids and e-buses to further develop e-bus fast-charging standards, such as communications protocols for infrastructure, electrical grids and e-buses. An electric-bus charging standard will be largely based on the recently adopted global DC fast charging standards for passenger cars, guaranteeing safety and helping stimulate investment, long-term commitment and increased adoption of clean mobility.
Urbanization is at a historic high and is stretching transport infrastructure of cities around the world. This ABB and Volvo collaboration will help support sustainable and cost-efficient transportation solutions to meet rising commuter demand.
