B9R Features

Power and performance on tap

The driveline, based on Volvo’s 9-litre diesel engine, is powerful, reliable and highly efficient. 380 bhp and 1740 Nm of torque give smooth handling and sufficient power for any traffic situation. The 12-speed Volvo I-Shift automated gearbox helps optimise performance and fuel consumption. This powerful drivetrain has all the traditional Volvo hallmarks of driveability, fuel efficiency and productivity.

 

Cleaner with SCR

The Euro 5 engine features SCR, Selective Catalytic Reduction, in order to reduce NOx emissions. SCR is an exhaust after-treatment process whereby an additive is injected into the exhaust flow prior to the catalytic converter.

 

Brakes

Powerful EBS-controlled disc brakes with floating callipers are well-known Volvo safety components. The gearbox can be combined with a retarder, substantially reducing brake wear. For top-of-the-line safety you can opt for our Electronic Stability Program (ESP).

 

Front suspension

The well-proven rigid front suspension offers excellent comfort and handling as well as a tight turning circle.

 

Automatic function check

The multiplexed electronics system keeps track of the basic functions. 

All safety features are checked automatically at every start up. The system also functions as a preventive maintenance and diagnostics tool.

Driver’s environment

Volvo means world-class ergonomics. Clear instrumentation and logical control panels help the driver stay alert, focused and in control. Specify with full dashboard or instrument cluster only.

Comfortable boarding

Electronically controlled air suspension permits a convenient kneeling function for easier and faster boarding.

Trouble-free maintenance

Every Volvo chassis 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.

 

Simple service

All service points are easily reached and, owing to component sharing within the Volvo family, your spare parts logistics is simplified. You also benefit from our extensive service network, which we share with Volvo Trucks.
