Golden Tours/Volvo B9TL MCV open-top

Taking up duties on Golden Tours’ sightseeing work in London are 10 B9TLs with MCV open-top bodywork, supplied by Volvo Bus (01926 401777). .

The chassis were built in Sweden and shipped to MCV’s Cairo plant for bodying. The buses – which join six others delivered in 2013 – are 10.3m long and are powered by Volvo’s nine-litre D9B engine coupled to a ZF EcoLife gearbox.

“We have been delighted with the performance and reliability of the open-top B9TLs we received last year,” says Nick Palan, Golden Tours MD. “They have proven very popular with our drivers and customers. With this latest delivery, Volvo Bus once again met our exacting requirements.” The partnership with MCV extends the scope of Volvo’s body options, adds Regional Sales Manager Phil Fletcher.
