After the 1957 Treaty of Rome (a pre-cursor of today’s EU) that was signed between Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands and West Germany (then), the idea was to have an open market between these countries. The signatory countries had to keep their markets open to competition within this region and promote free trade.
Soon a flood of companies such as Mercedes-Benz, FIAT, VanHool and other brands began to flood the French market prompting truck/bus major Saviem (it was then owned by Renault) to develop a new bus that could take on the new foreign brands.
Thus the Saviem E7 was born, that gave customers new bus design with options to choose the length of the bus between 9m, 10.5m 11.5m and 12m. These E7 buses were produced with both Saviem and Renault logo during the years 1969-1983.
