    Swedish bus manufacturer Volvo is to focus on buses for city traffic in the next few years. When presenting the report for the second quarter of 2013, CEO Olof Persson said Volvo's new generation of city buses, including hybrids, plug-in hybrids and electric buses, has been successful. The company will continue the work in co-operation with regional players; not only buses will be developed, but also facilities such as built-in bus stops and WiFi. However, in the second quarter of 2013, Volvo's bus sales dropped by 20% compared with the same period in 2012. Order intake also dropped.
