Order for 133 buses from Concordia in Sweden
Volvo Buses Sweden has received an order for 133 buses and coaches from Concordia.
Other buses in this major order will add to Swebus’ fleet in various parts of Sweden and another part is coaches for Concordia’s subsidiaries, Swebus Express and Interbus.
These buses and coaches will cover most versions of the Volvo 8500, Volvo 8700 and Volvo 9700. Deliveries will take place between March and October 2006. Most of the buses and coaches will come with the new Euro 4 engines and the I-shift gearbox.
Much of the focus in the purchase concerned fuel consumption and as an element in this, all Volvo buses and coaches will be equipped with Dynafleet. This will enable customers to actively work at keeping fuel costs down.
