Volvo recently announced receiving their largest order for electric busses ever, 25 fully electric 7900 buses, ordered by Tide Buss to be used in the Norwegian city of Trondheim. AtB, the public transportation administration company in Trondheim, was one of the first in Europe to order hybrid buses from Volvo back in 2010. Now, with the new purchase, Tide Buss will have a total of 35 electric buses – making it the largest fleet of electric buses in Norway.

Starting in 2019, Volvo’s buses will be used on four different routes in Trondheim, ranging from 7.5 to 9.5 miles each.
