HA NOI (VNS)— Siemens yesterday launched the first hybrid bus in Viet Nam that uses fuel efficient techniques. It marks the 20th anniversary of Siemens' presence in the country.
Siemens' ELFA technology has helped urban buses reduce their fuel consumption by as much as half, easing the impacts on the environment. The hybrid bus was the result of the nine months' joint work between Siemens and Vinamotor.
Roland Busch, member of Siemens AG Executive Board said that Siemens hoped to further co-operate with Viet Nam in the future.
Siemens, which entered Viet Nam in 1993, has a strong presence in key areas of the national economy, including energy, technology, healthcare, transportation and infrastructure development.-VNS
