Volvo sells electric buses to Luxembourg
Sales-Lentz, one of the largest public transport operators in Luxemburg, is a forerunner in the introduction of alternative drive technologies. It was the first company to buy Volvo Hybrids in Europe as early as in 2009. Today, they have 24 Volvo hybrids and 12 Volvo electric hybrids in their fleet.
Sales-Lentz now takes the next step in electrification with the purchase of four Volvo 7900 Electric buses. The buses will operate in the city of Differdange in south-western Luxembourg.
The buses are sold as a turn-key solution. Volvo will be responsible for vehicle servicing including battery maintenance for a fixed monthly cost. Traffic start is planned for the second quarter of 2017.
“With this new efficient technology developed by Volvo, Sales-Lentz promotes the ambition of the City of Differdange to build a sustainable change for the transportation of persons and improve the quality of life for citizens.
“Change is the parent of progress”, said Wolfgang Schroeder, Managing Director, Sales-Lentz ■
