Volvo TR 600 & 700 series
In March 1930, Volvo introduced its first 7-seaters, which were purpose-built taxicabs. These cars, designated TR671-679, differed primarily from the PV651 to PV655 due to their longer wheelbases and fittings.
The TR671-674 were based on the PV650-652 cars, while the TR675-679 were closely related to the PV653-655 cars.
With the exception of the TR676 (which had a taller body), these cars generally looked like the standard models apart from the fact that they were longer. In addition to the complete cars delivered by Volvo, chassis suitable for special bodies were offered.
The TR701-704 were the successors to the TR671-679 purpose-built taxicabs.
