Volvo has built the world's longest electric bus

Volvo will send the first examples of the world's longest electric bus to Brazil, Colombia and Mexico.

Volvo has beaten BYD.

At least when it comes to the length of buses. The Swedish industrial company has built nothing less than the world's longest electric bus.

The double-headed bus has room for 250 passengers and is a whopping 28 meters long. However, it will not hit the Swedish roads right away.

Instead, the first copies of the bus will be sent to Curitiba in Brazil, Bogotá in Colombia and Mexico City, Mexico.

Volvo states this in a press release .

Previously, the BYD K12A was the world's longest electric bus. But the Chinese must see himself surpassed by one metre. But one meter is also enough. Because a record is a record.

The bus moves forward (and back, for that matter) with two electric motors that together produce 540 horsepower. And in the world of electric cars, that's not much. But that is enough for the world's longest bus.

It takes between two and four hours to fully charge the bus. The fastest way is if some chargers are installed on the roof of the bus.

– A BRT (bus rapid transit) system with these buses can transport as many passengers as a metro system, but has much lower implementation and operating costs and no emissions, says André Marques, director of Volvo Buses in Latin America.

Volvo promises that the electric buses will have the same characteristics as their predecessors, which were short and still run around the world on diesel.

– We combine the reliable mechanical basis of our double-articulated diesel buses with the latest Volvo technology for electric buses, reads the press release.
