Biggest Volvo hybrid order Biggest Volvo hybrid order
Volvo has received its biggest hybrid bus order, with 60 vehicles to be delivered to Curitiba. It is the first South American order for Volvo hybrids and has led Volvo to set up facilities to manufacture hybrids at its Brazilian bus plant, which is in Curitiba.

“Several of the largest cities in Brazil tested a Volvo 7700 hybrid in 2010,” says Luis Carlos Pimenta, president of Volvo Buses in Latin America. “The tests were very successful and contributed to this first order, which we believe will be followed by additional orders from other cities.
