Since 1977, Volvo's Borås factory has manufactured bus chassis for the global markets now reaching the milestone of 200 000 units produced. The chassis number 200 000 was their latest Volvo BZL Electric, a coincidence, but of high probability since the brand has been ramping up the production of this particular after the recent launch.
Even though number 200 000 was an BZL Electric, over 50 different chassis models have been made in Borås and some of the most popular models were the Volvo B10M, Volvo B7R/B7RLE and the Volvo B11R.
