I have previously written about the I-Shift gear box and the benefits for fuel consumption and emissions. It is thus a pleasure to announce that we now offer the 9700 coach on the US market.
In Europe we lowered the fuel consumption by some 13% when the 2007 model (Euro IV with I-shift) was compared to the 2006 (Euro III with automatic gear box). It will be very exciting to learn about the performance of the US certified 13 litre engine.
The 8 air springs and the weight distribution give superior handling and comfort and the Volvo engine brake offers unique safety performance by high break power.
