New Bharat of London adds a new integral Volvo B11R 9700 to its expanding fleet.

Taj Dhaliwal, Director for New Bharat Coaches, explained: “We have once again turned to Volvo to meet the demands of our growing business.

“We needed an additional quality vehicle that would be reliable and offer excellent fuel economy, and our ongoing positive experience with Volvo meant we had no hesitation in adding another B11R vehicle to our fleet. We are 90% Euro VI now and aim to be fully compliant by April 2019.

“Our Volvo Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager Jo Baker was, as always, excellent to deal with throughout the whole negotiation and purchasing process providing us with a great package and advice and a vehicle delivered on time which is very important to us.”

Destined for use on a range of private and London touring work, the integral Volvo 9700 is 13.8m in length and has passenger capacity of 57 seats.

Jo Baker added: “The 9700 has a formidable reputation among operators for its excellent fuel consumption, appearance and overall performance.”

Taj Dhaliwal continued: “With Volvo Bus you get the complete package. They are responsive, and you have the reassurance of their dealer network. We would be happy to recommend Volvo to anyone looking for a reliable, fuel efficient coach”.
