Volvo B9TL/Volgren - AVD1
 
The prototype Volvo B9TL was fitted with Australian Volgren bodywork. On 29th July 2003 it was photographed at a KMB Depot in plain white livery. It is believed the body was shipped completely knocked down (ckd) from Australia to Switzerland, where it was assembled, before being shipped back to Hong Kong!
