VOLVO B5RLE HYBRID
Better business for cleaner cities
The Volvo Parallel Hybrid driveline has a long, proven in-service record with thousands of vehicles in operation. They reduce emissions and deliver consistent fuel savings and high reliability. It's a result of the complete integration of the engine and the hybrid systems – all of which are designed and manufactured by Volvo.
Save up to 39% on fuel bills
The fuel savings will depend largely on the kind of operation undertaken, but our highly efficient Euro 5 B5R LE Hybrid can deliver savings of up to 39% in mixed traffic. The Hybrid chassis is equipped with a number of special features to assist optimum performance.
With legendary Volvo reliability and a service-friendly layout for easy maintenance, your bus is designed for optimum uptime. The B5R LE Hybrid is backed by our usual warranty and minimises risk levels for our customers.
Operating one of our hybrids for a year could improve your carbon dioxide footprint by 27 tonnes. Typically this means 12g less CO2 per passenger mile, and the hybrid also offers a 50% reduction in particulates and NOx. So, the more hybrids in the fleet, the better the result.
reduced weight – more capacity
We have introduced weight savings on the B5R LE Hybrid chassis, allowing passenger capacity on a par with conventional diesel buses. The B5R LE Hybrid is built to cope with the needs of dense and demanding city traffic, but it is also suited for routes that service suburbs.
