Sunfleet Car Sharing, a carsharing service based in Sweden, recently received 2016 Volvo V60 bi-fuel vehicles. Westport Innovations will be delivering a total of 42 V60s to Sunfleet in the next month.

"We are very proud to be able to offer the new Volvo Bi-Fuel to Sunfleet's customers,” said Peter Alguren, Sunfleet’s managing director. “Together with a biogas contract from the fuel suppliers, this is a first-class alternative with minimal environmental impact."

Sunfleet plans to increase bi-fuel vehicle availability depending on customer needs and infrastructure availability. For example, the carsharing service added seven new Volvo V60 bi-fuel vehicles to the Almhult location in September, according to the company.

Currently, Sunfleet operates approximately 1,000 cars in its carsharing business in Sweden, including 53 Volvo bi-fuel cars from Westport. The bi-fuel vehicles are available in seven of the company's almost 50 locations, including Goteborg, Kungsbacka, Lerum, Linkoping, Lund, Malmo, and Vasteras.
