Volvo is the world leader in high-capacity buses. Proven in demanding BRT operations, the Volvo B12MA has set the standard for mass mobility in busy cities. Articulated and bi-articulated versions provide for the perfect synthesis of capacity and flexibility.

making every inch useful

The Volvo B12MA has its powerful engine horisontally installed in the middle of the wheelbase. This way, the floor remains flat and engine installation does not take any space from the passenger compartment, and it is also very beneficial from a weight distribution point of view.

coping with tight schedules

The Volvo 12-litre engine delivers 340 hp, but, perhaps more important, the torque is a massive 1700 Nm across a wide rev range. This helps the driver to keep average speed up, yet with smooth acceleration and maintained passenger comfort.

always on the road

With Volvo buses in your fleet you and your passengers benefit from our renowned reliability. Long service intervals, mechanical strength and an extensive service network keep your buses up and running.
