Total Performance

Performance for comfort

With a Volvo coach, performance is much more than engine power. The performance level has a direct impact on passenger comfort, driving style and the overall travel experience. The engine’s effortless power delivery and wide torque range, the 12-speed I-Shift transmission and Volvo Dynamic Steering make the ride smooth, yet at a higher average speed. Ultimately, it is passenger satisfaction and, indeed, the business result that are the true gauges of a coach’s performance.

Driver performance

Driver performance

Everything starts with the driver. Passenger comfort, safety, fuel consumption and, ultimately, the vehicle’s lifecycle cost. All of it depends on the driver’s skills and abilities. Volvo can contribute in several ways. We do it by designing the chassis, driveline and driver’s station in a way that allows full control of the vehicle – without compromising on comfort. But we also offer advanced driver training as well as telematics-based follow-up and direct feedback, helping the driver to continuously improve.

Vehicle structure

 

Vehicle structure

The new Volvo coach range features a new structural design with a sandwich construction roof. The roof is more than 250 kg lighter than before, which means that payload has increased and the centre of gravity is lower. The result is increased stability on the road – and a more comfortable ride for the passengers.
