The Volvo B11R is a 10.8-litre engined coach chassis available as both two- and tri-axle from Volvo since 2011. It was introduced as the second of the Volvo BXXR series, replacing the rest of the B12B range in 2011, and later its fellow BXXR platform model, the B13R in 2013.
The B11R is the standard chassis for both the 9700 and 9900 coaches, except the North American 9700 which still use the B13R. It is also available in the Indian market and is sold by Volvo under the 9400 brand with a length of 14.5 metres.
As at October 2014, over 150 had been sold in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Polish operator PolskiBus purchased 20 with Plaxton Elite i bodies, while New Zealand operator ManaBus has purchased a fleet of Kiwi Bus Builders bodied B11Rs.
In the Philippines, B11R is also the basis for some Marcopolo replicas manufactured by Autodelta Coach Builders, Inc. The larger B11R [twin axle version] will begin ready in 2018, similar those to the B7R.
In Indonesia, TransJakarta operates more than 100 Laksana Cityline 2 bodied B11Rs.
Quad-axle Brazilian Variants
The B11R is also available from the plant in Curitiba, Brazil, but there it is named after the engine output, with the B380R/B430R range for Euro III and B340R/B380R/B420R/B450R for Euro V. Those with an engine output of 330, 370 and 410 bhp have got their names adjusted to what the previous values were for the preceding B12R range that they replaced. Like its predecessor, the B12R, it is also available in a quad-axle version for large double-deckers.
