Although only recently delivered, the drivers at Stuart’s Coaches are already lavishing praise on the new additions, which are in the smaller 10.8 metre variant with 38 seats.
It is the first time that Stuart’s Coaches have ordered new eVoRas, as Stuart Shevill of Stuart’s Coaches explained: “We have heard a lot of great things about the Volvo B8RLE eVoRa, especially the reliability, customer feedback and support provided from Volvo and MCV.”
“This gave us the confidence to purchase out first two Volvo B8RLE MCV eVoRas which have run like clockwork in our fleet and have been a great addition to our operation. Our drivers love driving them and they allow us to maintain our high standards for customer experience and comfort, while looking modern and stylish on the road.”
“Fuel economy is better than expected with the eight litre engine and we know we can pick up the phone to Volvo at Blantyre if we have any issues and they will continue to provide exceptional service. We are so impressed, that we have ordered another one for 2023 delivery.”
Being in the smaller 10.8 metre variant makes these new eVoRas perfect for the route from Carluke into Glasgow city centre, where manoeuvrability is a key factor.
Jennifer McGill, Regional Account Manager for Volvo Bus, said: “Working together with my colleagues in aftermarket and Volvo Bus, we have helped Stuart and the team at Stuart’s of Carluke to make the optimum choice when it comes to their business for their service bus needs with the Volvo B8RLE eVoRa.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Stuart and getting to know his business during the sales process and I am very confident these additions to the fleet will help them grow and adapt for the future and beyond. I take great pride in seeing these buses out on the road locally and they certainly look the part in their striking blue and silver livery. I have no doubt they will continue to deliver for Stuart and his customers for years to come.”
