Together with our partner International Automobiles Ltd, Volvo Buses was extremely excited to deliver the first-ever B8R 70-seater premium coach to Hang Po Transportation Co., Ltd in Hong Kong.
Established in 1990, with over 30 years profitable operation experience, Hang Po Transportation specializes in providing coach services, such as company staff transfer, sightseeing traveling, housing estate bus services in Hong Kong.
This newly acquired 70-seater coach is built on the industry leading Volvo B8R chassis. Manufactured in Boras, Sweden, the Volvo B8R chassis is powered by the long proven fuel-efficient and low-emission D8K Euro VI engine with up to 320 horsepower. Equipped with the six-speed fully automatic transmission and advanced safety systems, such as the Volvo electronic braking system and Electronic Stability Program (ESP), the Volvo B8R chassis provides a high level braking efficiency and excellent high-speed driving stability, especially suitable for operations on the unique terrain of Hong Kong.
Bodied by Jit Luen Auto Body Works, the new coach delivers outstanding passenger capacity, installed with all LED lamps, independent air-conditioning vent and USB charging station for every seat. More importantly, the design that makes the enhanced space possible is the tall, wide and beautiful rear-row roof, which allows larger compartment space, accommodates more seats, therefore increases overall seating capacity.
Upon delivery of the vehicle, a full day driver training, covering both theoretical and practical knowledge was conducted by the Volvo certified driver trainer from International Automobiles Ltd, to ensure the bus performs to the fullest potential, maximises uptime and overall efficency.
Having a fleet of over 100 coaches, Hang Po Transportation always keeps the customer-centric principle in the heart of its business. To improve safety and provide a premium customer experience, Hang Po first opted for a Volvo bus in 2017, with a purchase of 3 units Volvo B7R, a product at the time well recognized globally.
“ At Volvo Buses, our promise is to be the best business partner of our customers. It is our greatest pleasure to continuously contribute to Hang Po Transport’s commitment in providing a safe, pleasant, comfortable journey to its customers, ” commented Emmanuel Jupet, Director of Volvo Buses Asia Pacific Region North.
Volvo Buses would like to thank Hang Po Transportation for the long-standing trust and support, and to Jit Luen Auto Body Works for the successful collaboration and cooperation in building the first-ever 70-seater coach in Hong Kong.
