“This is a historic step, the biggest renewal of our European coach range for more than 20 years. I am convinced that our customers and their passengers will appreciate the result,” said Håkan Agnevall, president, Volvo Buses.
The new Volvo Buses range of vehicles for tourist and line-haul operations includes two models, the Volvo 9900 and the Volvo 9700.
Both feature comprehensive solutions for active and passive safety. Among the new features are more robust frontal impact protection (FIP) and a Driver Alert system that monitors the bus’s movements and issues alerts if the driver is tired or not concentrating on the road.
