Volvo’s bus chassis factory delivers its 200,000th

It was 1977 when Volvo’s Borås factory in Sweden started building bus chassis for its global markets.

It’s now reached the milestone of 200,000 chassis produced, with chassis number 200,000 being one of its new Volvo BZL Electric versions. The new all-electric platform for single and double-deckers was launched last year.

Even though chassis number 200,000 was a BZL Electric, over 50 different chassis models have been made in Borås with some of the most popular models being the Volvo B10M, Volvo B7R/B7RLE and the Volvo B11R.

The Borås factory is Volvo’s industrial hub for chassis production for global markets and is one of the first bus production facilities that relies solely on renewable energy.

All the energy that the factory uses comes from renewable sources, such as hydropower and biofuels.

Celebrating the 200,000 chassis are employees from the Borås plant including Joakim Wretman, Vice President Operations, Borås and Anna Westerberg, President of Volvo Buses.
