Romantic film shows the benefit of quiet electric buses
Volvo encountered one more advantage of electric vehicles over coventional vehicles.
It's love! After “Ford Tried To Kill Sex,” now it turns out that diesel buses are killing love.
They are just too loud. Here is proof:
"To demonstrate the advantages of silent, electric buses, Volvo will today be presenting a short film "Route 55." This film shows a key moment in life – and how easily it can be lost."
Route 55 between Lindholmen and Chalmers/Johanneberg in Gothenburg will be served by three all-electric buses.
Volvo Group PR Manager Karin Wik said:
"The buses will open up entirely new opportunities in urban planning. The buses are able to drive indoors and collect passengers at locations that are currently off-limit for buses. The silent, electric motor creates a comfortable environment and this film is intended to demonstrate, in a light-hearted and engaging way, the important role a silent bus could play in one of life's small but important moments."
"Buses are made for people and that's why we wanted to make a film that focuses particularly on the human aspect."
