See below for a little of the History

The Plaxton Premier, Plaxton Excalibur and Plaxton Prima were closely-related designs of coach bodywork built by Plaxton.

The Premier and Excalibur were introduced in 1991 as replacements for the Paramount. The Premier was the mainstream design, available in the same two heights as its predecessor (but expressed in centimetres, 320 and 350, rather than millimetres). The Excalibur was a premium specification coach, based on the Premier 350 but with a more dramatically-styled front end.

A taller export version of the Excalibur, built on Volvo B12 chassis, was briefly marketed by Volvo in France, and was named Prestige (a name which was subsequently re-used by Plaxton on the home market for a low-floor bus).

The Excalibur accounted for around 15% of production; the Premier 350 was the most popular model taking about 45%; and the 3.2-metre Premier 320 and Prima made up the remaining 40%.
