Long service life
The frame is a stiff and lightweight precision-welded box-section structure made of stainless steel, the same material used for the body itself. This choice of material brings benefits in terms of high corrosion resistance and a long service life. The exhaust system, catalytic converter and exhaust filter are all also made of stainless steel.
A perfect working space
The driver's compartment in the Volvo 8400 Low Entry is spacious and offers you full control over both your vehicle and the surrounding traffic. The driver's environment is ergonomically designed and all the controls are easily accessible. The instrument panel accompanies the steering wheel when it is adjusted, so you always have the instruments at the right distance and the most convenient angle. Generous glass panels and the large rear-view mirrors provide a good field of vision all round.
Easy on the environment
The Volvo 8400 is approved according to Euro 3 standards, which means it produces low emission levels.
The driver is in full control
The instrument panel has an information display that is linked to the on-board electronic system. If a serious fault occurs, the driver is alerted and advised to stop, and the display indicates what has happened. In the event of a minor problem, the display shows what should be rectified. When the time for the next service approaches, the electronic system provides plenty of advance warning. In addition, the driver can check how much fuel the bus is using at any given moment in time, over a given distance or over a specified period of time.
