Green and Efficient

The Volvo D9B has been engineered from the
outset to provide high fuel efficiency and low
particulate emissions. In order to also reduce
emissions of nitrogen oxides to very low levels,
it is equipped with SCR (Selective Catalytic
Reduction) for treatment of the exhaust gases.
Another benefit is that SCR has a positive
effect on fuel consumption. Customers who
have chosen Volvo buses with SCR have seen
fuel consumption improve by as much as in
average 9 percent relative to the Euro 3 buses.

Economical driving
 The Volvo B9R is equipped with Volvo I-Shift, our automated gearchanging
system which has become such a huge success in both the bus and truck worlds. Volvo I-Shift combines the reliability of the manual gearbox with the automatic transmission’s convenience and smoothness. Thanks to precise gearchanges and low internal frictional losses, Volvo I-Shift contributes to economical driving. What is more, Volvo I-Shift offers quiet and smooth gearchanges. Manual 6-speed gearbox is available as an alternative to I-Shift.
