John Durrant, Managing Director of Regency Coaches, explained: “We required a new coach to meet our passenger capacity needs and additional contracts. Following the purchase of three Volvo coaches last year, it was an easy decision to once again return for another vehicle.
“We are committed to regularly updating our fleet and the B11R Sunsundegui SC7 we have chosen is 13.8m, has a 59 seat capacity and a toilet.
“Our fleet is currently around 50 per cent Volvo and we continue to experience reliability and excellent fuel consumption with our existing vehicles, which gives us peace of mind when making this sort of investment.
“Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager, Richard Mann, who we have had a long-standing relationship with is knowledgeable and delivers what we want when we want it.”
Richard Mann added: “We are delighted that Regency Coaches has once again chosen Volvo for its latest purchase. The highly fuel-efficient Euro 6 engine provides low operational costs, while the B11R’s high quality overall ensures superior functionality, passenger comfort and lifecycle productivity.”
“We are confident they will see the many benefits that this vehicle will bring to their business and look forward to working with them again.”
