Volvo is planning to launch its double decker and vestibule buses in the country in the next three to five years, Volvo Buses India MD Akash Passey said here today.    

"We are planning to introduce our entire range of models we have in our parent company kitty in the next three to five years," he added.    

The company currently offers two models of luxury coaches and city-type buses from its Bangalore facility.

"We are also introducing sleeper coaches in Gujarat and Karnataka from next month where demand for such transport is very high," Passey said.    

The company registered a jump of 50 per cent in its sales over the last year owing to bulk orders by different state transport corporations under the JNNURM project.    

In 2008, Volvo sold 400 buses of which 250 were city-type and the rest coaches, while this year the company has sold 600 buses most of which are city type.    

"We plan to hold on to the 600 sales figure, though there will be no JNNURM in 2010," Passey added.

He claimed that the company was making rapid progress in the city bus segment with 12 cities in the country now running Volvo buses, which are four-times expensive. But given the operational benefits and longer life, operators are shifting to it.

Volve bus co has taken a very good decision to launch doubledecker buses.Govt should make compulsion to have doubledecker bus fleet in each city where it is possible throught out india for city buses service. This might help to solve traffic problems. Volve co has taken major step by lauching this type of buses. It will be helpful to both company and public.
