GOTHENBURG, Sweden – Volvo has developed a parallel hybrid with a technology that will be used in buses as well as trucks and construction equipment.

The Volvo 7700 Hybrid’s lower fuel consumption reduces the emission of the greenhouse gas CO2 by up to 30%. The discharge of particles and nitrous oxides declines by up to 40% to 50% compared with the diesel version.

The first buses will be delivered to customers during 2009, while mass production begins in early 2010.
