Volvo to host ride and drive event at MC Group

Volvo Bus will hold a special ‘ride and drive’ coach event in conjunction with MC Group Ltd at their dealership depot in Blandford, Dorset on Monday 22nd August.

The one day event, which runs from 12pm-3pm, will present an ideal opportunity for local coach operators in the Dorset and Wiltshire area to visit the MC Group depot and test drive the popular Volvo B9R Sunsundegui coach. The vehicle, which is built on one of Volvo’s most popular chassis features a Euro 5 incentive engine connected to the I-Shift gearbox and a seating capacity of 55.

Volvo Regional Coach Sales Manager, Richard Mann will be on hand to meet operators and discuss the potential benefits of upgrading to the B9R. “I’d just like to encourage any local operators, particularly those already running Volvo B10Ms or B12s to come along on the 22nd and have a look at the B9R,” explained Richard. “They can test drive the vehicle and see whether they like it and if it might suit their operational portfolio”.

Steve Robbins, MC Group Blandford, General Manager commented, “This ‘ride and drive’ day reaffirms our longstanding position as one of the key Volvo dealerships and we look forward to welcoming local operators on the day”.
