The first prototype of the Volvo Laplander L3314 vehicle was completed in 1961 with production beginning the following year. Over 10,000 Laplanders were built for delivery to some 40 countries before production was completed. Two basic versions of the Laplander were built, a pick-up (designated PU) and a hardtop (designated HT). Both are used by the Swedish Army, the PU being known as the Pltgbil 903 and the hardtop as the Pltgbil 903B. Further development of the Laplander resulted in the C202.
The chassis of the Laplander consists of an all-welded box-section frame of pressed and welded 3 mm sheet steel, two tubular cross members, one box-section cross member and one U-section cross member.
