The Volvo Group’s North American subsidiary, Nova Bus, has received an order for 475 hybrid buses from Quebec. This is the single largest order for hybrid vehicles that the Volvo Group has ever signed to date. The buses are scheduled for delivery beginning of 2014. The order also encompasses an option for approximately 1200 vehicles.
The customer, ATUQ, is a consortium consisting of the province’s nine transit authorities.
“This order underlines the strong relationship ATUQ and Nova Bus have developed over the years,” said Jean-Pierre Baracat, president of Nova Bus. “ATUQ has renewed its confidence in our company and vehicles once again, and we are glad to continue to work together to further enhance transit services in our communities.”
ATUQ is a longtime key customer of Nova Bus’, with their partnership stretching back to the seventies.
