1932: First forward-control “Bulldog” bus

Scania-Vabis delivers its first forward-control “bulldog” bus. The design is inspired by US bus maker Twin Coach in Ohio to which Scania-Vabis chief designer August Nilsson had travelled in 1929. Such buses are spacious, despite being short wheelbase and feature a usefully tight turning circle. During the 1930s, as truck sales falls, Scania-Vabis shifts from being a truck company into a busmaker with some production of trucks and separate engines.
