Volvo B10M Buses and Coaches

In 1981 the Volvo B10M mid-engined chassis replaced the 15 year old B58 undefloor bus chassis. While the B58 came to New Zealand only towards the end of its life the B10M was ordered by NZRRS for coaches and Auckland Regional Council for trolley buses almost immediately after being launched. Almost all Volvo B10M coaches in New Zealand have tag axles. Unless noted below the coach will have a tag axle.

The buses on this site are actively tracked. The last registration record search was 13 February 2012.

Auckland Regional Authority Volvo B10M CityLine 1299 or 1300

Two Volvo B10M 2-axle buses with VoV B45D bodies built by Coachwork International were ordered by Auckland Regional Authority in 1985. Licence fees associated with fitting the VoV bodiy to a non-German chassis lead to the volume order for 88 buses going to MAN. These are the only Volvo buses to receive the VoV body. Like other ARA buses purchased in the 1980s legal owner was Auckland Regional Council.
