HESS | Motion & Emotion


Know-how for sustainability

Resting on your laurels rarely succeeds in this world. Especially in the fast-paced mobility sector, flexibility and innovation are crucial to ensure that customers stay satisfied. That’s why we have always been hard at work developing new, environmentally friendly transport solutions to keep the passengers of the future happily moving along too. At HESS, we don’t just pay lip service to sustainability – we believe in it with all our heart and soul, and work every day to bring it to life.

Working for the environment

HESS is not only a pioneer when it comes to making vehicles but also a driving force in environmental protection. Because we have always emphasized working with nature, instead of against nature, and using new, energy-efficient technologies, clients in Switzerland, Europe and across the globe have confidence in what we build. A good example is the first double-articulated hybrid bus: A low-emissions, high-capacity bus with an environmentally friendly electric drive system which continuously converts braking energy back into new propulsion.
