Volvo Bus announces a major order with Scottish coach holiday specialists Lochs and Glens at Coach and Bus Live, NEC, Birmingham, that will see the delivery of four new Volvo B13R, 14 metre tri-axle Jonckheere bodied coaches during 2012.

Gartocharn registered, Lochs and Glens has purchased the vehicles as part of an overall upgrading of its all Volvo fleet of 16 coaches. This latest order follows on from the successful delivery of a Volvo B13R coach earlier this year.

The company’s four new 57 seater vehicles are all specified with Volvo’s fuel efficient, Euro 5, 13 litre diesel engine, rated at 460hp and coupled to the proven Volvo I-Shift gearbox. The high specification coaches also feature CCTV, CD & DVD capabilities, an on-board toilet, three point safety belts and a servery area.

Lochs and Glens’ new coaches will be used across their extensive tour programme and in conjunction with their six luxury hotels situated in a variety of idyllic locations around Scotland. 

Announcing the order, Volvo Bus Regional Sales Manager Duncan Crosby said “Lochs and Glens, Transport Manager, Norman Chinnock was delighted with the new B13R, 14 metre tri-axle coach he purchased earlier this year and following on from that success, we’ve been able to conclude the order for another four vehicles for delivery in 2012, which is absolutely fabulous.

“Lochs and Glens have built up a tremendous holiday business based upon extremely high standards and we are delighted that our Volvo coaches can support their continuing growth and development”.
