BUSES

Volvo Defense’s intercity buses and coaches are adaptable to every mission. They’re fuel-efficient, safe, reliable and easy to maintain. World-leading technology - conventional or hybrid - provides further operational advantages. These buses get your personnel to the mission area - safely, cleanly and reliably. They’re a must when moving large numbers of people becomes a requirement.

Adapt the chassis and driveline

Adapt the chassis and driveline

The Volvo 8900 is an ideal vehicle for short- to medium-distance intercity operations and similar transportation assignments. You can adapt and optimise the driveline and chassis as you see fit, and choose between a 2- or 3-axle configuration depending on your working environment and requirements.

Rigid or independent front suspension and a compact and service-friendly driveline installation helps to create a spacious and efficient coach.

Efficiency and comfort

Efficiency and comfort

These buses are good places for personnel to be. They can embark and disembark quickly, quietly and easily. Troops can travel in comfort - seats, ventilation, and windows are designed and built for a relaxing journey that’s conducive to productivity. And they’re protected by our renowned safety measures and features.

The driver, too, benefits from a comfortable working environment. Volvo Dynamic Steering provides perfect stability on rough roads, as well as giving excellent control at low speeds and while reversing. The driving environment is ergonomically designed, with instruments in easy reach and line of sight. So there’s no wrestling with the wheel or straining for controls - just a smooth and efficient drive.
