A longstanding Volvo customer, Whitelaws was the first Scottish operator to acquire the Volvo integral 9700, the forerunner of the latest model.
Sandra Whitelaw, managing director of Whitelaws, says: “We are pleased and proud to bring the first 9900 coach to Scotland.
“While we do have vehicles featuring bodywork from other manufacturers, our preferred choice is to have the Volvo integral coach as we believe this delivers the complete package for us with its aesthetic appearance and fuel economy.”
The B11R chassis has proven ideal, she adds, in terms of performance and fuel efficiency, and the new Z-shaped styling on the windows of the 9900 offers “a very different and impressive look”.
“We see adding this superior coach to our fleet as a natural progression for us as our strong partnership with Volvo continues,” adds Whitelaw.
