Surrey operator, Passenger Plus, has taken delivery of its first Volvo, a B8R SC5 with Sunsundegui SC5 bodywork. Powered by a Volvo D8K350 six-cylinder Euro6 engine matched to an automatic gearbox, it has a roof mounted Carrier 353 air conditioning unit and heating with automatic control, a Sony entertainment package, front mounted 19inch LED flatscreen and reversing camera with dash mounted monitor. Additional features include an onboard vacuum cleaner, USB sockets at every seat and Alcoa Dura-Bright alloy wheels.
Passenger Plus MD, Mark Drury, said, ‘Recognising that our customers travelling in smaller numbers demand the same safety, comfort and luggage capacity that they enjoy on our full size vehicles, we have invested in a 41-seater coach. This is our first Volvo purchase, adding to a mixed fleet of 20 vehicles and the Volvo B8R SC5 was a perfect fit for us with the latest generation Euro6 engine, which already exceeds the requirements of the London Ultra Low Emission Zone scheduled for 2020.’
The vehicle was supplied by Volvo Coach Sales.
