DELIVERY OF HYBRID BUSES TO NMMT SOON
BENGALURU: Volvo Buses India today said it would start delivering hybrid buses to Navi Mumbai Municipal Transport (NMMT) in the next couple of weeks. The NMMT had placed an order for five buses.
“We will start delivering hybrid buses to NMMT in next couple of weeks,” said VRV Sriprasad, business head for Volvo Buses (India and South Asia).
Volvo has partnered with NMMT to launch hybrid buses under FAME India (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India) by the central government. A hybrid electric bus combines a conventional internal combustion engine propulsion system with an electric propulsion system, Sriprasad said.
He said public transport corporations across the country are in talks with them to introduce hybrid buses in their cities.
