In the world’s busiest cities, double decker buses are a vital part of the bloodstream. People trust the bus network to take them to work, in and out of the city centre and back home at night. And that's exactly what the Volvo B8L double decker does. Day in, day out. It has been developed uniquely in cooperation with leading operators. A new design from a proven source makes it a safer choice.
The Volvo B8L is the result of a no-compromise engineering philosophy. A more powerful engine, higher torque and up to 600 kg less in chassis weight, makes take-off and hill-climbing virtually effortless. The Volvo B8L is ready for the pulse and the beat of city life.
Increased power, lower weight, more torque, tighter turning circle and enhanced departure angle are just a few of the performance improvements of the Volvo B8L. It features an efficient driveline layout, without angle drive, which notably reduces fuel consumption and interior noise.
