I don't see anything wrong with bus for city use especially since we already have trailer buses running in the city. Only competition its going to face is from the 9400. Unless this bus reduces the cost per passenger per km, it will be difficult to sell.

Is this product being launched in India? Or is this the global website? The Volvo India site seems to be silent on this product (they don't talk about the B9R as well).
