The 10.8 metre variant with 38 seats makes light work of the rolling Pembrokeshire and Carmarthenshire countryside and is primarily used on a route between Haverfordwest and Carmarthen.
Feedback from the drivers has been excellent as well as from customers who are enjoying a quieter ride through picture-postcard villages in the popular tourist area which has seen passenger numbers increase as visitors return.
Clive Edwards, a founder of Bysiau Cwm Taf Valley Coaches, which was formed in 1990, said: “We know how reliable Volvo vehicles are, as we’ve had plenty of them, but this is the first time we’ve specified a smaller MCV eVoRa.
“We are very pleased with it and I would not hesitate to order another one when it is required.”
Bysiau Cwm Taf Valley Coaches is based just outside Whitland and also has a depot in Pembroke Dock. As well as the new MCV eVoRa, the operator has just added a Volvo MCV eVoTor to its coach fleet.
Simon Woolacott, Regional Account Manager at Volvo Bus UK & Ireland, said: “Bysiau Cwm Taf Valley Coaches has always been a good Volvo customer and I’m delighted that they are so pleased with their new eVoRa.
“It’s ideally suited for the testing, yet beautiful, terrain in west Wales. Being slightly smaller in length at 10.8 metres makes it much easier for the driver to handle.”
