Volvo B11R engine


Powerful engine
Volvo engines are known for first-class driveability, outstanding fuel efficiency and low environmental impact. The B11R driveline with Volvo’s 11-litre diesel engine will take you all the way. 330, 370, 410 (also in EEV version) or 450 bhp in Euro 5 configuration and massive torque from 1600 up to 2150 Nm are perfectly matched by the Volvo I-Shift transmission* and Volvo’s single-reduction rear axle. 
 *The D11C370 is available with automatic transmission.

Volvo I-Shift
The legendary Volvo I-Shift transmission combines smooth and silent shifting with fuel efficiency and lets the engine run under optimized conditions.

Automatic function check
The multiplexed electronics system keeps track of the basic functions. Clear instrumentation and logical control panels help the driver stay alert, focused and in control of the coach. All safety features are checked at every start-up automatically. 

Front suspension
Rigid or independent front suspension is available, offering excellent comfort and handling along with a tight turning circle.

Powerful, EBS-controlled disc brakes are well-known Volvo safety components. For top-of-the-line safety you can opt for a retarder and our Electronic Stability Program (ESP). The stepless hydraulic retarder provides gentle stopping and reduction of wear on the service brakes.

Trouble-free maintenance
In a perspective of lifecycle productivity, maintenance and reliability are crucial matters. The B11R is designed for long service intervals and swift and simple maintenance. Oil change intervals are extended and many critical components are maintenance-free, such as prop-shafts, half-shafts and rear wheel bearings. In addition, Volvo’s multiplexed electronics system functions as a preventive maintenance and diagnostics tool.

Simple service
With Volvo, service and maintenance are simple matters. All service points are easily reached and, due to component commonality within the Volvo family, your spare parts logistics are simplified. You also benefit from our extensive service network, which we partly share with Volvo Trucks. There are also specialised Bus Service Centres, providing competence, tools and parts for virtually all your needs.
