This is a Karosa, but since Karosa has never made trolleybuses it must have been converted in North Korea.

(Correction: Karosa never made trolleybuses with that body.)

This bus is manufactured by Pyongyang Trolleybus Works and the type is 'Chongnyonjunwi' ("Youth's vanguard"). There are two variation of these; type 1 with three passenger doors and type 2 with two passenger doors.

No, I only have a book "Automobiles Made in North Korea" which has a pictures of exactly similar looking bus. Everything matches, 100%.

I think it's a copy of Karosa B731/C734

Or an original Karosa rebuilt as a trolleybus? I've read that North Korea has converted diesel locomotives to electric, so they might have done the same with buses.

Maybe make is just 'Pyongyang'? 'Pyongyang Trolleybus Works' sounds like a company/plant's name. Anyway interesting thing.

I am also a little reticent(reluctant?) for using these long company names as makes. Even if these vehicles do not always really have a make (like Russian ones) there is usually a name derived from the factory/company name that sounds more like a make name.
But "Pyongyang" is just the capital city of North Korea, not really a make I guess.
