Sustainable Transport in Bangalore

Jump to the comments
The Volvo hybrid bus that was unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo, would be launched on Bangalore roads soon, said Karnataka Transport Minister Mr. R Ashoka.

The 105-seater single bus would have a two-month trial run in the city, expected to be from this month itself. As per a preliminary report, it cuts diesel fuel costs by 30 per cent, while emissions are significantly less.

According to officials, the Volvo 7700 hybrid has a diesel engine and an electric motor, which can be used either independently or jointly. The battery that drives the motor is charged through re-generative braking. The engine shuts off when the vehicle is stationary and does not start again till the bus reaches 15-20 kmph, further saving fuel.
