We are proud to present the Volvo B8R, the successor to the legendary global best-selling Volvo B7R. We have kept all the proven features and further refined them with Volvo’s latest technology. The Volvo B8R is a true money maker in the city, intercity and coach applications. It is built with your business in mind, with a focus on your long-term profitability and total cost of ownership. 

More power from your fuel

Volvo has a long-earned reputation for superior fuel efficiency. The Volvo D8 is our most fuel-efficient engine ever. It matches or exceeds its legendary predecessor, yet provides more power, torque and elasticity in driving. 

The safer choice

We know how quality, efficiency and optimised maintenance all lower your operating costs. The Volvo B8R is built at Volvo’s Swedish, state-of-the-art bus chassis factory; the best start possible for a vehicle with a long and trouble-free service life. The durability of its driveline means that its efficiency and environmental performance will be consistent over time. 

100% UPTIME IS OUR GOAL

With the Volvo B8R, superior uptime comes standard. With quality, and easy access to maintenance points, built-in from the start, service intervals are extended. Add Volvo’s service network and programmes for maintenance and service, and you can avoid unplanned stops. Any workshop visits will be less frequent and take less time. 

A worldwide service network

Volvo is a global leading manufacturer of heavy commercial vehicles, and for decades we have invested in our worldwide service network. With swift logistics we provide bus and truck customers with maintenance, services, advice and Genuine Volvo Parts. All told, there are over 1500 Volvo service centres all over the world.
