Southgate and Finchley Coaches introduce Volvo B8R Plaxton Leopard

Southgate and Finchley Coaches has introduced a Volvo B8R with high-capacity Leopard bodywork to its fleet, supplied by Plaxton (01909 551166).

Says MD Peter Rice: “The introduction of London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone has kick-started a lot of investment in new coaches. That includes our latest 12.8m, 72-seat B8R Leopard. It’s a flagship vehicle that sets the standard in terms of style, performance and street presence.

“We are delighted to have it in our line-up. It further extends the long and successful business relationship that we have enjoyed with Plaxton over many years, hence its models forming the backbone of our fleet.”

The coach has entered services on the operator’s portfolio of school contracts and private hire work.
