Volvo body concept
Optimises several crucial parameters: weight, passenger protection and durability. This has a direct effect on repair, maintenance and life cycle cost. Our patented jointing technique enhances precision and build quality, and the use of both aluminium and steel gives the perfect combination of strength and low weight. The new Volvo body concept is also shared with the Volvo 8900 range for commuter and intercity traffic.
Outstanding passenger through-flow
The high passenger capacity is accompanied by wide, electric or pneumatic, doors and an interior truly built for the passengers. Easy entry and exit mean a lot for passenger flow and overall productivity. And the new electric doors require considerably less adjustment and maintenance.
First-class driver's environment
The driver's environment is ergonomically designed and can be adapted to suit individual needs. All so as to create an attractive working climate.
Easy to manoeuvre
The Volvo 7900 Articulated bus is almost as easy to manoeuvre as the 12-metre variant.
Large windows, large rear-view mirrors and powerful headlights offer brilliant visibility. Air suspension and sturdy roll stabilisers provide excellent ride comfort and anti-roll stability.
Designed for increased uptime
In the new Volvo 7900 several components and elements are grouped and 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 power of a more sustainable city fleet
Generous power reserves are actually the answer to the equation of fuel economy and swift operation. In the new Volvo 7900 you can choose between diesel/biodiesel or CNG/biogas 9-litre, 6-cylinder powertrains. All Volvo engines are dimensioned and geared to run optimally in the intended traffic situation, while fuel consumption and emissions are kept at a very low level.
