Volvo has launched the world’s largest bus chassis at the FetransRio exhibition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. 

The new biarticulated chassis, Gran Artic 300, is 30 meters and can carry up to 300 passengers. For real.

The new Gran Artic 300 has been developed in Brazil especially for BRT systems – a high demand transportation environment where buses run on dedicated lanes. The bus will be able to carry up to 30 passengers more than the preceding model. One biarticulated bus of the new model replaces three standard vehicles.

Volvo also recently unveiled a new 22 m articulated chassis, Super Artic 210. In addition to the higher transportation capacity, 210 passengers, it is equipped with five doors. The extra door facilitates boarding and alighting and also enables a better passenger distribution inside the bus. The vehicle is built on only three axles.

The high-capacity buses reduce the number of vehicles operating in the bus corridors, which in turn should contribute to an increased average speed of the system as well as reduced emissions.
