Since 1998 we have been ISO 14001 certified – the first and still the only North American coach manufacturer to achieve this world-recognized environmental certification.

Volvo D13 Engine
Prevost® specified the Volvo D13® because it meets the requirements of the new, more stringent, heavy-duty diesel EPA emissions standards for 2010 and beyond. The D13 Volvo engine reduces diesel emissions and improves air quality beyond the 2010 standards, while simultaneously increasing fuel efficiency. This engine’s advanced Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system is a key contributor to its clean and efficient operation. With our unique vertical installation and rooftop diffuser mount, the SCR and diesel particulate filter systems generate less heat in the engine compartment, further reducing emissions. This configuration provides easy access and safe maintenance, and protects SCR components against damage from dirt, water and other road debris.
