Successor to the earlier made bus model Ikarus 30, the Ikarus 31 model was launched in 1956. With a capacity to take between 25-35 passengers (depending on seating placement), this bus was ideal for urban transport.
Soon after its launch, countries such as Bulgaria, Egypt. Soviet Union, Yugoslovia and China gave orders that kept the model running. The Budapest Municipal Bus Company (FAKV) placed a trial order for 22 buses subsequently increasing it to 700 buses over a period of time.
Developed as a bus for city travel and for factory workers, the Ikarus 30 (subsequently renamed as Ikarus 311 after 1961) was more popular abroad than in its home country – Hungary.
Nearly 3500 buses were produced between 1956-1965.
