Volvo celebrated its 25th anniversary in Mexico by unveiling a locally manufactured electric bus, named Luminus.

A couple years ago Volvo Buses tested a 7900 Electric in the country. In April 2023 the group announced that the Egyptian company MCV (Manufacturing Commercial Vehicles) will produce bodyworks for its electric buses for the European market, as a consequence of a change in the business model for the old continent, involving both city buses and coaches.

The bus boasts a low-floor body with wide doors and is available in lengths ranging from 9.7 to 13 meters.

Inside, the bus offers spacious interiors and incorporates Volvo’s latest generation of active and predictive safety systems, including speed limit adjustments and pedestrian detection.
