Surpassing all other OEM’s in 2010, Volvo Bus has gone from strength to strength in their operations across Australia and have maintained their position as the market leader. Much of their success has been attested to their values, industry leading service and support levels, and the resulting long term partnerships built with their customers.
Volvo’s dedicated effort towards fuel efficient and reliable products in the city, school and coach range has also been instrumental in contributing to their longstanding success. These products have not only enhanced the overall driving experience for customers, but have raised the bar for industry standards.
Similar efforts have also been invested in driving innovation and continuous development across the range. Volvo Dynamic Steering (VDS), Volvo Driver Support System (DSS), Hybrid Technology, Euro 6 and the Volvo I-Shift transmission in particular, have been areas of focus for Volvo Bus as they develop and refine these technologies.
The Hybrid product is proving particularly successful for Volvo and customers alike – with Volvo Bus clearly leading the way in the continued momentum towards electromobility industry-wide. The Hybrid product is tried and tested, proven to reduce fuel and emissions, without the need for external charging infrastructure.
With a highly skilled and trained bus technician team, remote diagnostics available via the Connected Services telematics offering (which comes free of charge with all new delivered Volvo buses), and product support from the largest dealer network in the country, Volvo Bus are well equipped with the expertise and resources to remain at the forefront of customer support – ensuring uptime for customers’ is at the top of the Volvo team’s priority list.
“In addition to our dedicated team at Volvo Bus Australia, we are fortunate enough to have product support from Volvo Bus Corporation globally, and also leverage from being part of the wider Volvo Group,” says Lauren Downs, General Manager Volvo Bus Australia.
“In Australia we also have the largest major accounts and contracts team in the industry, with demonstrated results in our strong, longstanding partnerships with the cities of Perth and Brisbane. I believe it is a testament to our passionate and dedicated team to proudly confirm our position as market leaders over the past decade.”
As Volvo Bus Australia celebrate 10 years as market leaders, they will continue to lead into the future with their values of quality, safety and environmental care, and with exciting product announcements due later in the year.
