Our history - 1938

1938

The first nylon toothbrush was manufactured in the USA.

  • The designers at Volvo kept a close eye on the trends and developments in the USA and were quick to copy ideas. There were plans to produce a new model with a special American touch, the PV60, but the war firmly put everything on hold.
  • In 1938 the product range was expanded with the B50 bus, which was built to meet the requirements of Stockholms Spårvägar (Stockholm Tramways).
