Delivering the lowest lifetime costs

We know very well that the costs involved with a bus don’t begin and end with the purchase price. The lifetime costs of running a commercial vehicle are substantial, and that’s why we when we talk about “building better buses”, we’re not referring to outstanding engineering for the sake of it. Our aim is to manufacture buses that in every way save operators money – in maintenance, recharging, fuelling, repair and service.

In fact, when you buy a Volgren, you’ll buy a vehicle with the lowest lifetime cost of any bus in Australia.

That’s not an opinion, it’s a guarantee.

And we support it with world-class university research.

A guarantee backed by research

In 2016 Monash University validated through research that the Volgren flagship bus offers the lowest whole-of-life cost compared to comparable buses made in Australia.

After conducting a rigorous study involving nine bus operators around Australia and examining categories such as fuel savings, repair and refit costs, and purchase price, Monash found that an operator could expect a saving of more than $60,000 over the life of a Volgren bus compared to competitors.
