The BS-IV compliant Volvo 8400 City Bus makes public transport an attractive option for people from various walks of life, including senior citizens, women, and children as well as differently-abled people. With easy manoeuvrability, higher average speeds, lower NVH, longer service life, besides enhanced comfort & safety, the premium city bus of today is clearly playing the role expected of it – that of drawing people away from their personal vehicles and imparting a better travel experience.

When it comes to Volvo, technology defines the way people experience comfort and safety in a city bus. With features like electronic suspension, kneeling mechanism, wide-access to facilitate quick entry/exit of people, the typical Volvo city bus imparts an assurance of safety thereby motivating people to choose the bus.

The driver’s dream

The driver’s dream

The driver environment is designed so as to ensure that the person at the wheel is not fatigued because of road and traffic conditions. The aim is to ensure that the driver is always alert and can respond quickly to any panic road situations. The driver area is an ergonomically designed, satellite configuration having clearly grouped and accessible switches ensuring least distraction from traffic.

Cars are driven by people. The guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo, therefore, is and must remain, safety.
