Happy "50th Anniversary" for the BCC Leyland Panthers.

Here's a photo of the bus being handed over by Athol Hedges to Lord Mayor Clem Jones.

On the Volvo website (Australia) the B7 is not listed anymore. so I guess they will have to see BT contract out


I think the main reason should be the engine emission standard. B7R dose not offer Euro 6 which will be a mandatory requirement in Australia (or has been applied). Therefore, Volvo decided to stop its selling of B7R. In the early 2018, they also replaced B9TL by B8L which offeres Euro 6 instead of Euro 5 or EEV. That means Volvo(AU) had stepped into Euro 6.

So how many differences between the engine of B7R and B8R? I heard that B7R's engine is not fitted with common rails injection while other models have. Besides, does the B8R have DPF in its exhaust control system?

The D7E engine has common rail injection but is sourced from Deutz of Germany. The D8C/D8K are UD-sourced engines and comply with Euro V and Euro VI respectively. The D8K has already undergone a major revision in 2017.
