Fuel efficient engines
Our Volvo D8K Euro 6 engine is one of the world’s most fuel-efficient bus diesel engines. It retains the extreme efficiency from our previous 7-litre engine and offers more power for the same amount of fuel. It’s available in three power ratings, 280 hp, 320 hp (also available in biodiesel version) and 350 hp. And as with all Volvo engines, you can expect solid wide-range torque and outstanding driveability.
Volvo body concept
A unique structure, as well as our patented jointing method, gives unparalleled build
precision and, thanks to easily replaceable parts, savings in service and repair. By using both steel and aluminium, we can add strength and reduce weight. Best choice materials save weight, cost – and the environment.
Aluminium corrosion resistant
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%.
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.
The expected lifetime of the bus is extended, and from Volvo we confirm this by offering extended coverage for key body functions, for example paint, corrosion, structure, floor and doors.
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.
