The Volvo B8R is a 7.7-litre engined coach and intercity bus chassis manufactured by Volvo since 2013 for Euro VI markets. It was designed as a replacement for the B7R and the B9R.[2]

In 2017, Euro III and V versions were launched worldwide with engine outputs at 250 and 330 hp.[1] The 250-hp version is marketed in Brazil as the Volvo B250R.[3]

Throughout Europe the B8R is most commonly available as the Volvo 8900, but can also be found in the Volvo 9500 and some versions of Volvo 9700, and from independent bus builders.

It is also available as a low-entry bus chassis, known as Volvo B8RLE.
