Volvo’s largest Swedish order
Volvo Buses has received its largest to date for Volvo Buses on the Swedish market. It will see a total of 276 buses enter operation with Nobina. All the buses are of the Volvo 8900 model, but their specification differs to suit regional requirements. Those for the Varmland region will be dedicated regional buses with a high level of comfort. The buses being built for Stockholm will be used primarily as feeders in suburban operations, where the focus is on high capacity. Delivery of the vehicles is due to start in June. The order encompasses 70 two-axles and 206 tri-axles in lengths from 12m to 14.8m. All are low-entry models powered by Volvo’s eight-litre biodiesel Euro6 engine producing 320hp.
Key Account Manager at Volvo Buses, Andreas Baljhagen, said, ‘We’re naturally really pleased and proud of this order from Nobina, the largest single order we have ever received on the Swedish market. I see it as further proof that we are exactly on track both with our product range and with our way of working together with Nobina.’
