London based coach hire company New Bharat has taken delivery of its thirteenth Volvo and first B11R MCV eVoTor.

One of the leading private coach hire companies in West London, New Bharat Coaches has been providing high quality and affordable coach travel for passengers for almost 40 years. The addition of a new B11R eVoTor to the fleet ensures that, whether the contract be a school trip or private excursion, both passengers and drivers will continue to have a premium experience.

Taj Dhaliwal, Director at New Bharat coaches, said: “As the thirteenth Volvo coach to be added to the fleet, the B11R eVoTor has instantly set itself apart from our other vehicles, being the first MCV in the fleet. A fuel-efficient coach that will keep costs down while maintaining functionality was what was we were after, and the B11R’s Euro VI engine is already delivering. Operating in London, the engine will also comply with local emissions regulations.

“The quality aftersales services and support at Volvo will allow us to make further savings and demonstrate that our investment was good value for money. The fleet management services will allow us to accurately monitor the vehicle’s fuel consumption, emissions and driving profile, allowing us to always change the way the coach is driven to make further savings in the long term.”

New Bharat opted for the 53 seats option B11R MCV, with Taj adding: “The 53-seat coach will allow us to easily carry out our current contract work, specifically, school trips – with 53 seats fitting almost two full classes. The safety of the students, and all of our passengers, is always considered, and the B11R will help to provide peace of mind to all of our passengers as well as drivers.”

Jo Baker, Retail Bus & Coach Sales Manager for Volvo, said: “It is great to hear that New Bharat have noticed the positive fuel efficiency capabilities of the B11R. The vehicle will help to reduce costs over time while also, with the Euro VI engine, doing its bit to keep emissions to a minimum.”
