In this issue of Coach & Bus we do look closely at some interesting zero emission opportunities including Volvo’s so called self-charging S Charge bus, a new take on hybrid propulsion. As Volvo boss David Mead  points out an extended range hybrid like the S Charge can deliver some real advantages in terms of cost and emission efficiency. We also look at the latest battery technology from Toshiba, proving that all batteries are not created equal.

As well as those stories we look at some interesting operator stories with various fleets including one with largely Mercedes power, another Scania operator and a bus hire operation that’s embraced Chinese brand Higer. We also take a look at the long awaited bus version of the Mercedes- Benz Sprinter, which they call the Transfer.

All that and a whole;le lot more  in the latest issue of Coach & Bus
