Volvo has officially launched its 9700 fully integral coach to the UK and Irish markets. In a sign of the continuing restrictions, it used a video hosted on the company’s official social media channels for the launch.
Built on the established B11R driveline, Volvo says the new 9700 blends luxury, performance, practicality and flexibility for any operation.

The launch of the Volvo 9700 complete coach to the UK and Irish market is an exciting development for customers and Volvo Bus.
“Operators will no doubt be familiar with the new Volvo coach family, the 9700 shares many of the futuristic design features incorporated into the 9900 coupled with others, such as PSVAR capability making it the perfect, versatile addition to our customers fleets.
“We know as the industry is getting back on its feet, operators will be reassured by having the support of a manufacturing partner, who understands more than ever the importance of reliable vehicles and quality aftermarket back-up and support.”
