The luxury motorcoach and motor home builder reviews its storied past and brings viewers up to speed on its latest innovations and technology in this marketing video.

Motorcoaches serve a vital role in the North American transportation system, carrying more than 100 million passengers every year, the video says. Prevost has been a leader in the motorcoach industry since it started in 1924 when Eugene Prevost, a cabinetmaker, was contracted to build a wooden body for a bus. The coach body set the standard for buses at the time. Prevost soon established the company as an industry pioneer.

Today, Prevost continues to innovate with buses, and has come out with many industry firsts such as front kneeling suspension. Prevost made the first coach with a stainless steel integral structure and fiber composite body, and installed the first frameless windows to give the bus a sleek exterior and bright, expansive interior.
