In 1950, Volvo launched an updated version of the taxis in the 800 Series. The principal new feature was the design of the front, which now had a lower profile and headlights set back in the front wings, much like the PV444.
The new taxis, the PV801 (with a glass division between the front and rear seat) and the PV802 (without the glass division), were introduced in 1938. The model was also available in chassis form, the PV800 and the PV810, the latter having a longer wheelbase.
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.
