Efficient driving requires an efficient and durable power source. Volvo’s new 11-litre Euro 6 engine combines strength, reliability and economy in a right-sized but equally powerful package. With 380, 430 or 460 hp and massive torque from very low revs, it will take your passengers to their destination swiftly and safely. On certain markets the Euro 3-compliant Volvo D11A engine is also available with power outputs of 370 and 430 hp.
*The D11C370 is available with automatic transmission.
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.
Powerful, EBS-controlled disc brakes are well-knownVolvo 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.
Rigid or independent front suspension is available, offering excellent comfort and handling along with a tight turning circle.
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.
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 Centers, providing competence, tools and parts for virtually all your needs.
