Keolis has ordered 22 of Volvo Buses’ new double-decker model, the Volvo 9700 DD. The coaches will be used for express services between Gothenburg and Borås from December 2021. 

The new Volvo 9700 DD model, which is the latest addition to Volvo Buses’ range of coaches with premium features. The new model, which comes in several different variants for express and tourist services, has received a very positive reception in the Nordic countries and in Europe. First and foremost, operators have praised its reliability and the option of customising it.

“The demand for comfortable, safe and reliable express coaches with a high capacity and productivity is growing. Fuel efficiency and the possibility of using renewable fuels, such as HVO and RME, are also becoming more important for many operators. With our flexible range of products and services, we can supply a complete, high-quality, customised solution that meets our customers’ needs extremely well,” explained Ulf Magnusson, Senior Vice President at Volvo Buses.

Passenger comfort was also an important criterion in Keolis’ choice of an express coach. “Volvo Buses meets the high expectations that both we and our customers have of modern public transport. This is a partnership where both Keolis and Volvo will do their utmost to offer safe, punctual and comfortable journeys between Gothenburg andBorås over the next 10 years,” added Karl Orton, Fleet Director at Keolis.

The Volvo 9700 DD accommodates up to 96 passengers. The coaches are equipped with Wi-Fi and every seat has a USB port. The chassis are manufactured at the Volvo Buses plant in Borås and the bodies are built by Carrus Delta Oy in Finland.
