Order for 177 Volvo coaches in Brazil4/26/11
“The renewal of the fleet, with Volvo coaches, by an operator that is a national reference for the segment is a reflection of its confidence in the brand’s vehicles. Our vehicles are known for their high level of technology, comfort and transport capacity, as well as low fuel consumption,” states José Luis Gonçalves, Coach Manager at Volvo Bus Latin America.
Due to its concern with passenger safety, the JCA Group requested that all coaches be equipped with the ESP system (Electronic Stability Program). ESP is an advanced safety device with sensors that monitor the vehicle’s lateral acceleration and which, if necessary, automatically applies the brakes to prevent roll-over accidents or driving off the road.
“The strength of Volvo coaches, in addition to the safety features, lies in their high degree of reliability and availability, combined with low operating cost,” states Heinz Kumm Junior, Executive Director of Auto Viação 1001.
