Volvo to supply 122 electric buses for Sweden
Nobina, the largest bus operator in the Nordics, has placed three orders for electric Volvo buses.
The orders are for a total of 122 Volvo 7900 Electric and 7900 Electric Articulated buses. The deliveries to Gothenburg, Malmö and Hässleholm in southern Sweden will take place in 2022-23.
The public transport operator has ordered 64 new and 20 used Volvo 7900E and 7900EA electric buses to start operating in Gothenburg in summer 2022/2023. The new contract will be a partnership between Nobina, the public transport authority Västtrafik and Volvo Buses. It follows the recent delivery of 145 Volvo electric articulated buses to the city in December 2020.
Nobina has also invested in 29 Volvo 7900EA units for delivery to city traffic in Malmö in September 2022. The purchase follows the successful implementation of 60 electric Volvo buses in the city in spring 2021.
The final order of nine Volvo 7900E buses will be delivered to Hässleholm, a town located in the south of Sweden. The buses will fulfil a newly won contract for Nobina and are set to start operating in traffic in December 2022.
