Göteborg has launched what is reported to be one of the world’s most modern electric bus routes.

The Swedish city’s new bus route 55 has three completely electrically driven buses and seven electric hybrid buses.

The buses on the route, which runs from Chalmers Johanneberg to Chalmers Lindholmen, through the centre of Göteborg, are equipped with onboard wi-fi and phone charging facilities.

The buses, provided by Volvo Buses, run on batteries that are quickly recharged with renewable electricity at the terminal stops.
