The BZL is Volvo’s fully electric chassis platform for both single and double deck buses. The vehicles destined for Metroline will feature MCV bodywork and will be built to TfL specification, in a mix of lengths (9.7m, 10.35m and 10.8m).
ComfortDelGro (UK) Group Engineering Director Ian Foster said, “Metroline is pleased to place this order with Volvo for the latest additions to our single deck ZE fleet.
“We have a long-standing relationship involving all areas of our transport operations around the world, and this reflects the trust we have in Volvo delivering a reliable product with exceptional aftermarket support and service.”
Volvo Buses UK & Ireland Managing Director Domenico Bondi added, “We are thrilled to receive this latest order from Metroline. The BZL is very well suited for Metroline’s operations in London, and will help deliver clean, silent and efficient public transport, and in addition builds on our strong business partnership with Metroline, and our journey together towards net zero transportation.”
