Is Volvo do Brasil tried to participate in Lower Manhattan Transportation?

Recommended Posts

I saw this brazilian video presentation for Volvo B12 model (a chassis used on long distance routes in '90s), but something attracted my attention in seconds 0:46 to 0:52. It was shown a Marcopolo Torino built in chassis Volvo B58 (both made in Brazil), where in the itinerary zone was written : "Lower Manhattan", and in 2-3 seconds later it was shown a map of Lower Manhattan (I distinguish WTC site).


The video isn't in English, is in Portuguese, due it was a Volvo release for brazilian market.


Does anyone know of this? I think about it was only a test purpouse (I saw in this video an American bus in 0:50).


Here is the video link :




pd: Was Volvo do Brasil try ....? is correct , I'm improving my English skill yet..

A search on the Internet reveals that a demonstration took place in 1992, and that 4 buses were brought to NYC with financial help from Volvo.


I think that #9258 is the MTA-assigned demonstration fleet number of the bus in the video, but I could be wrong.
