New hybrid buses will appear in Brussels

90 new hybrid buses will be purchased by Brussels public transport operator Stib.

New buses which use less fuel, produce less pollution and less noise and will cost about €42.5 million.

The Stib has signed an agreement with Volvo to supply and maintain the buses.

The vehicles use electric power from an inbuilt battery to accelerate away from stops, before the ordinary engine kicks in.

The battery is recharged from the energy generated when the bus is coasting or slowing down.

About 60 of the newly ordered buses will be delivered by the end of the year. An order for a further 145 articulated hybrid buses is being prepared.
