Additional Volvo B9R coach for Plastows

A third new Volvo B9R Jonckheere coach has joined the growing fleet of loyal Volvo operator, Plastows Coaches.

Having recently purchased two new B9R coaches, the Oxford based company were keen to continue the upgrade of their all Volvo fleet with the addition of a third new B9R Jonckheere bodied coach.

“The two new B9Rs we recently purchased have proven to be very successful on our private hire work,” explained Plastows’ Partner, Barbara Plastow. “We decided that we had a requirement for a third vehicle and it seemed logical that we should specify another Volvo B9R.”
Plastows’ latest Volvo B9R coach is specified with a rear-mounted D9B 9.4 litre diesel engine, capable of 380hp and connected to the 12-speed fully automated Volvo I-Shift mechanical gearbox.

The vehicle has an exceptionally wide rev range resulting in excellent driveability, whilst the electronically controlled air suspension provides a high level of comfort for passengers.

Other important features present on the new coach include 53 high specification, leather trimmed seats, two TV monitors, CD/DVD player, coffee machine and a reversing camera.

“As I have outlined previously the understanding and trust we have with Volvo Bus Regional Coach Sales Manager, Jo Standbridge, really is an important factor when it comes to us reinvesting in our fleet,” continued Barbara Plastow. “Volvo know the standards we expect here at Plastows and they keep delivering.”

“The re-investment in our popular B9R chassis by Plastows Coaches is a clear endorsement of the the service we provide and the continued reliability of our Volvo vehicle range,” concluded Jo Standbridge.
