On October 21 Volvo Buses demonstrated its range of various solutions for high-efficiency charging at an event in Gothenburg. The Volvo Buses ‘panto up’ solution is based on latest technology from Schunk, featuring such benefits as compact installation and low additional onboard weight. Panto up will be available as an alternative for the Volvo 7900 Electric and Volvo 7900 Electric Articulated in Europe as of autumn 2021.
