Driver’s climate zone
A separate zone for the driver’s climate makes it much easier to stay fit, alert and attentive to the passengers. And for extended safety, Volvo’s Alcolock is available as an option.

A generous storage compartment with room for personal belongings enhances convenience and safety.
Aluminium doesn’t rust
Aluminium is corrosion resistant which is an important factor for the expected service life of the bus. There is also an environmental upside, as the aluminium structure can be recycled to 90%.
Long service life
A rigid body lasts longer, and the service life increases with Volvo’s new body concept. In addition, every kilo saved means less mechanical stress on every critical point.
Several components are grouped and many elements are bolted to the frame. This means that many repairs require no welding. Uptime increases and repair costs are cut. Add to that swift replacement of bumper corners, GRP side panels
and wheelhouse covers.
Extended body warranties
The expected lifetime of the bus is extended, and from Volvo we confirm this by offering a Volvo 8900 total offer package which includes extended body warranties.
Improved parts availability
More common parts enhances service and maintenance efficiency throughout the product range. Add to that improved documentation and stocking for customer specific parts and traceability in aftermarket systems, by individual bus specification.
