Scania has sold 85 ethanol-powered articulated buses to Busslink, a regional public transport company in Stockholm.

The order from Busslink is Scania’s largest single bus transaction in the Swedish market since 2004.

Stockholm boasts the world’s largest fleet of ethanol buses, which run predominantly on inner-city routes in the Swedish capital.

In total, Scania has delivered over 600 ethanol buses. More than 500 of the vehicles are in operation in Sweden.

Compared to a conventional diesel engine, Scania says ethanol-powered vehicles can reduce fossil carbon dioxide emissions by up to 90 percent.
