Large German bus order came to VDL


Industrial group VDL has received a large bus order from public transport company KVB Cologne. The Germans ordered a total of 53 electric buses. Financial details were not disclosed.

According to VDL, this is a follow-up job. A few years ago, KVB also ordered electric buses from the Dutch group, which made such vehicles for numerous transport companies in Europe.

In the Netherlands alone, more than three hundred electric VDL buses run. According to the manufacturer, these contribute to a cleaner environment through CO2 savings of more than 20,000 tonnes per year.

The Kölner Verkehrs-Betriebe, as the KVB is called in full, is one of the largest transport companies in Germany. The company transports nearly 800,000 people every day.
