The city wants is a new hybrid proposal brought by Volvo Buses, which offers a solution for those living in large urban centers.
Indeed, the city wants to take care of the environment, it wants clear skies. Also, the city wants to listen, it wants energy savings, and it wants safe mobility.
Urban dwellers’ main petitions and interests are related to the environment. This is why the firm made sure that the Volvo 7900 Hybrid’s strict environmental standards cover the entire range of the bus’s service life; meaning, through the initial concept with the development and production for its everyday use to its dismantling and recycling. All its actions are guided by the concern for the global climate.
Large cities all over the world share the problem of air pollution. This issue affects both industrialized nations and underdeveloped countries. The gases behind this air pollution include carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and carbon monoxide.
The impact of the emissions released into the atmosphere is direct and cumulative. This is why, with time, the situation worsens. Lowering emissions and eliminating the sources of pollution are the most effective actions to reverse the environmental problem.
In this sense, the #laciudadquiere (the city wants) project is committing to a sustainable environment by focusing vehicles that can help reduce CO2 emissions by 40 percent, and even by up to 50 percent if we include nitrous oxide (NOx) particles. This effort is part of the search of cleaner skies for the cities of today.
The Volvo 7900 also provides a comfortable and noise-free experience. This benefits not only the driver and passengers but also those who are in the surroundings during its everyday route. In other words, the vehicle allows you to “listen to your city.”
Similarly, this model has the lowest fuel consumption in the market, reducing fuel consumption by 30 to 40 percent thanks to its aerodynamic and lightweight body. Furthermore, it offers a wide variety of services that make it even more efficient. With this service, Volvo addresses society’s need to save energy.
The city also wants safety
Managing traffic in a smart manner, seeking the best accessibility conditions on the road, and creating friendlier urban spaces are factors that are becoming a service and an added value in large urban centers.
Therefore, Volvo sustains safety is one of the most important pillars of this initiative. The 7900 Hybrid includes a pedestrian and cyclist detection system that alerts the driver in case of risk of collision. Moreover, the alarm also alerts pedestrians of the danger, which addresses the need for a safe city.
An advocate for the environment on four wheels
The Volvo 7900 Hybrid is one of the most reliable and efficient buses on the market. It can help save up to 39 percent of fuel and is up to the standards of market-leading diesel buses.
As previously stated, the model delivers fuel savings of 39 percent and up to 50 percent is we include NOx particles. Its electric engine offers a silent driving experience, another fundamental advantage for the environment.
The Volvo 7900 Hybrid is also available in an Articulated version with an expanded capacity for 154 passengers, which is four times larger than the previous diesel model and with a superior capacity than any hybrid vehicle available. With this, low fuel consumption and productivity reach a completely new level.
“The city wants” is in the web
The program has its own website www.laciudadquiere.com, which offers relevant information for transport operators, public managers, and citizens. Among other things, it offers hybrid plans to enjoy the city with company and in an environmentally-friendly way.
Additionally, it offers users a survey where they can express any concerns and an e-blog and newsletter to be up to date with electromobility and environmental care.
