The buses, designed and built in Volvo Buses factory at Hosakote, on high-performance, front-engine Eicher 6016 R LPO 12.4 m chassis, set a new benchmark for bus travel in India with their future-ready design and luxurious interiors, said a press release.
“A year ago, we announced the formation of a bus division within VECV with the clear aim to shape the developments in the Indian bus industry. Today I am proud to launch a new range that synergises Eicher brand’s extensive local presence and expertise in value engineering with Volvo Buses India’s competence in premium bus segment. This product truly combines the ‘best-of-the-both-worlds’ said Mr. Vinod Aggarwal, MD & CEO, VE Commercial Vehicles.
