Prevost was originally formed when cabinet marker Eugène Prévost was asked to build a custom bus body. After this initial request demand grew and eventually a plant was built to begin full time production. The company was aquired in 1957 and again in 1969 before being sold to Volvo Bus Corporation in 1995.
Prevost is also well known for producing Ground Force One, which is the name of the X3-45 shells used by US Presidents including both George W Bush and Barack Obama.
