Volvo: No to Minivans But Yes to Wagons and Crossovers

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

Glady Reign asked:



Volvo is setting the spotlights ready and rolling the red carpet as it welcomes the newest wagons and crossovers into its stable. The new XC60 is scheduled to arrive in 2009 and by that time, the automaker is expecting to have a total of 5 wagons and crossovers in its lineup. But Volvo will not be stopping there since it intends to make further expansions.

The automaker is considering the idea on moving both upscale and downmarket from the existing lineup of the V50, V70, XC70, XC90 and XC60. This information was revealed by Volvo’s top executives at the recently held North American International Auto Show. According to Steven Armstrong, Volvo Car Corp. COO, “Volvo is well-known for its versatility. We were producing crossovers before the term was even invented. There are still plenty of opportunities to fill in gaps with new things.”

It should be noted that Volvo has created a luxury wagon concept which it presented at the 2003 Geneva Auto Show called the Versatility Concept Car. The said concept if it makes production will be renamed V90. The automaker is also studying the prospect of producing smaller sized crossovers—much smaller than the XC60 said Lex Kessermakers, Volvo Car Senior Vice President of Brand Business and Product Strategy. He also added, “If we were to further expand our model range, likely it would be in the V or XC range.”

The XC60 concept was launched at the recent 2007 North American International Auto Show. The said vehicle will share the same Ford C1 platform technology with the Land Rover Freelander. The automaker said that the vehicle should never be confused with the XC50 which was the first name used for the XC60. The vehicle exudes brand new styling and design direction that represents future Volvo vehicles.

The size of the XC60 is likened to that of the BMW X3 or Acura RDX. It also possess outstanding features like the glass roof, a newly styles grille, new shifting mechanism, mechanical tail gate, a much larger Volvo symbol, and 20-inch rims. Armstrong said that the XC60 is a logical option for people who entered the Volvo brand with the C30 hatchback or S40 sedan. And as for the V90, Kerssemakers said it is “high on my wish list, but we have to be realistic. There’s a limit to what a small organization can do.”

Although Volvo is planning of expanding its wagons and crossovers lineup but it stresses that it will not venture into the minivans segment. According to Kerssemakers, “The XC90 is our seven-seat interpretation. We’re happy with it. Our customers are happy with it.” he also added that Volvo needs to ensure first that its current lineup is profitable before it venture into new arenas. “All those variants cost a lot of money. But it is easier to cancel or reduce volumes of a vehicle than to suddenly have to play catch-up.”

Volvo has built several wagons and crossovers. And each of them has undergone rigid and meticulous engineering starting from the fitting of large car parts down to smallest details like the installation of Volvo master cylinder. Volvo makes sure that everything is fitted perfectly.

Volvo’s Brief History

Volvo was formed by Assar Gabrielsson, a businessman and Gustaf Larson, an engineer in 1927. For its first year of operation it has been able to sell 297 cars—all OV4 model which was based on an American design. The automaker’s early creations possess conservative design and technology which resulted to its lack of global recognition.

The low cost of labor in Sweden has helped the automaker in growing gradually until it began exporting cars abroad particularly in America. Volvo later became the largest car maker in Sweden beating Saab which is a GM subsidiary there.

In the year 1947, Volvo had begun concentrating on medium price to luxurious cars until the arrival of the PV44 which is the automaker’s first ever small car. Although it lacks in technology but the 4-cylinder car was aggressively priced. The PV444 was also the first mass produced car by Volvo which later resulted in 100,000 sales in nine years.

The next small car produced by Volvo was in the year 1956 and was called the Amazon or popularly known as 120 overseas. Almost 667,000 units were produced during its 14 years of existence. Volvo has started expanding from the late 50’s to the 60’s and as part of its expansion it has built a larger plant at Torslanda to produced its needed 200,000 cars.

Despite the larger plant the automaker has remained producing conservative products but excluding the P1800 sports car which was manufactured in 1961. The P1800 is powered by a 4-cylinder 1.8 liter engine and was assembled in the UK. It was the development of Volvo 144 which has helped the automaker to establish a reputation for safety. The 144 was provided with safety features that include disc brakes all round, 3-point safety belts, crumple zones front and rear, and a fail-safe dual-channel brake system.

The 240 series which was launched in 1974 is considered to be an important model of Volvo until late 80’s. The 240 series was the first turbocharged Volvo and performed strong in motor racing. After the 240 series, came Volvo 760/740 series which became the automaker’s flagship model. The design philosophy employed for the 760/740 series was applied today on the S80.

The PRV V6 engine of the S80 was developed jointly by PSA, Renault and Volvo. The relationship with Renault could have ended in a merger but unfortunately the whole deal broke down.

Volvo Releases 2008 C70, Pricing

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008
volvo
Zeke Gervis asked:



For 2008, Volvo reinvents its hardtop convertible C70 with more horsepower, technology and some fine detailing.

Under the hood of the 2008 C70 is a nine-horsepower bump. The turbocharged 2.5-liter in-line five now has 227 horsepower from 218 hp on the previous version. For the front driver, the customers can choose between a six-speed manual and a five-speed automatic gearbox.

The C70’s folding hardtop mechanism is new for the model year. And instead of the aluminum trim of the first model year, the 2008 model uses Laminated Oak wood trim has been added to the center control panel, console and door handle surrounds. On the steering wheel are leather trim and the gearshift knob. For a more durable arrangement, the handbrake has been improved. Aside from this, the clock has moved – it is now seen on the information screen.

For better performance, handling and safety, Volvo also placed a standard tire-pressure monitoring system as well as improved air vents. On the hardtop convertible button, a brighter finish is definitely observable. Moreover, the Volvo “iron mark” has been added to the remote key fob – another distinctive feature from the car maker.

As to the paint colors, Ice White paint is now offered for the latest model, alongside Pearl White. The car also now comes with a premium Sovereign Hide leather trim.

To those who want to grab a 2008 car from this Swedish supplier, you can now budget the total cost as Volvo released pricing on many of its 2008 models.

The C30 and the new T6 turbo engine in the S80 sedan are introduced for the said year. For the T5 “Version 1.0.”, the C30’s pricing will start at $22,700 while the “Version 2.0″ has an MSRP of $25,700, both having a turbocharged five-cylinder engine that yields 227 horsepower. Since the new T6 turbo in the S80 sedan is the major change for 2008, it definitely gets the major change on the engine. The T6 AWD model, whose price starts at $42,045, comes with a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that yields 285 hp. For the 3.2 front-wheel-drive version, prices remain at $38,705. But the price for the all-wheel-drive S80 with V8 engine increases almost $2,000 from $47,350 to $49,210.

From $39,090 this year, the C70 for 2008 now costs $39,240.

The prices of the aforementioned cars exclude the freight cost of $745.

Major reinventions plus a 9-hp increase to 227 hp are seen on the S40 and V50 wagon whose prices for 2008 begin at $24,365 for the S40 and $26,815 for the V50. As to the top AWD T5 versions of the two models, they are priced respectively at $30,365 and $31,565. The current V50 models have the price range of $26,690 to $30,190.

According to Volvo, their company will release next year the pricing for the 2008 V70 and XC70.

About Volvo

Based in Sweden, Volvo Group is a supplier of commercial transport solutions. They produce products such as trucks, buses and construction equipment, drive systems for marine and industrial applications and aerospace components and provide financial services. Maker of quality Volvo oxygen sensor, Volvo was then an auto manufacturer that was founded on April 14, 1927 in the city of Gothenburg.

In Latin, Volvo means “i roll” combined from “volvere”. In May 1911, the name Volvo was originally registered as a separate company within SKF AB and as a registered trademark along with the intention to be used for a special series of ball bearing. However, this idea was only used for a short period of time because the SKF decided to use “SKF” as the trademark for its entire bearing products.

In August 10, 1926, SKF Sales Manager Assar Gabrielsson and Engineer Gustav Larson set up the car-manufacturing business Volvo AB within SKF group. So in 1935, Volvo AB was introduced at the Stockholm stock exchange and SKF then decided to sell its shares in the company.

Volvo ÖV 4, the first series produced Volvo automobile, left the factory on April 14, 1927. In effect, this became the official date of Volvo’s foundation.

Volvo Carves Safety to Its Soul

Sunday, April 20th, 2008
volvo
Glady Reign asked:



Volvo has long been associated with building safe cars, but as rivals roll out vehicles with more safety features, it becoming difficult for the Swedish automaker to stand out. This is why the automaker plans to carve the word ‘safety’ to its soul and to all of its products and wares so much so that it would be impossible to remove.

The Swedish automaker was an early safety leader, “And it still is showing leadership in some areas,” said Brian O’Neill, the former president of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). “But it’s hard to even say who’s a leader anymore (because) there’s so much competition.”

Anne Belec, the CEO of Volvo Cars of North America, says safety is the “soul of our brand,” and the automaker, owned by Ford Motor, welcomes the competition. “Everyone else’s interest in safety all of a sudden elevated what we stand for,” she said. “We’ve never deviated from our core message of safety.”

Still, Volvo said last week that it is changing ad agencies to “move the brand forward” and “leverage… our rich heritage in safety.” It replaced the Euro RSCG with Arnold/Nitro. The first assignment will be campaigns for Volvo’s highest-volume models - new versions of the V70 station wagon and the XC70 crossover SUV.

Volvo sales were down by six percent in 2006. Belec said that the drop was not unexpected because the company sold out of the old version of its flagship S80 sedan - the new one went on sale in February - and the C70 coupe. Nonetheless, luxury rivals Lexus, Mercedes-Benz and BMW posted solid gains in 2006.

Volvo has tried to broaden its appeal beyond safety to performance, but it did not take. Although V-8 engines will still be offered, the performance-oriented “R” models are being phased out this summer. “Call it a brave attempt,” said former CEO Victor Doolan, who retired in 2005.

Belec noted that with the S40 small sedan, Volvo did a series of computer-simulated frontal crash tests without the engine installed. The engines were then designed to fit within the empty space that remained so the cars would have as much space to absorb crash forces as the larger S80 sedan.

Still, safety remains the primordial reason why aficionados stick to Volvo. In a February survey of luxury vehicles’ purchasers, safety was the attribute most often mentioned among Volvo’s “above-average” qualities. Below average in the poll by GfK America were traits including acceleration, distinctive looks and “fun to drive,” all of which Volvo had hoped would broaden its image.

“Our cars aren’t ugly boxes anymore, and we do offer V-8 performance, but in the end, we are about protecting people,” Volvo spokesman Dan Johnston said. “We’re rather proud of who we are and where we’re going.” Doolan added Volvo continues to emphasize safety, but the message may be getting lost. “The message is right, but I don’t think it has the frequency they need.”

Meanwhile, Honda has been aggressively pitching safety after announcing that it would eventually make a long list of safety features standard equipment on all of its models. By the end of 2006, all Honda and Acura models except its two sports cars had side air bags, side-curtain air bags and anti-lock braking systems as standard equipment. All light trucks have stability control standard. Its cars and trucks have front ends designed to minimize injury to pedestrians and to prevent taller vehicles from riding over smaller ones.

The Japanese automaker said it is not trying to usurp Volvo’s image. “Competitors always look at one another’s ads, and in developing our ‘Safety for Everyone’ advertising, we did not study any one manufacturer more than any other,” Honda spokesman Jeffrey Smith said.

Volvo can make the same claims as Honda and was, in fact, the first automaker to install both side and curtain air bags. “I think it’s going to be very difficult in the short term to take the safety crown away (from Volvo) because it’s so well entrenched and the perception is so strong,” Doolan said. But, “It shouldn’t be taken for granted.”

“There’s no question its part of their culture, and I think it always has been,” O’Neill said. “Volvo clearly has some good safety technology, and Volvo and Saab have the best whiplash prevention. It’s something the Swedes took more seriously than the rest of the world.”

Fredrik Arp, the CEO of Volvo Cars in Sweden, said that the safety of its vehicles goes beyond equipment. It is built into the cars. How people are injured in crashes is factored into every aspect of design, he says. “Seven air bags is not really what we’re talking about.”

Carl Nash, one of the founders of the Goleta, Calif.-based Center for Injury Research, said that the Volvo XC90 SUV did better than any of the dozens of other vehicles the group has tested for roof strength in rollover crashes. “Philosophically, the (Volvo) engineers asked the question, ‘How do people get injured in rollovers?,’” said Nash, an auto safety professor at the George Washington University.

In the industry where most vehicles get high scores in the crash tests because they are equipped with the latest safety technology, the Swedish automaker should concentrate on every auto part, not just on the Volvo fan clutch. “There’s no reason that we can’t stand for something beyond safety,” Johnston said. “That’s an ongoing project that will take awhile. But our core is still safety.”

Great Performance Assured With Functional Volvo 960 Parts

Saturday, April 19th, 2008
volvo
Kimberly Baker asked:


Volvo, a Swedish car brand, has always been known for its dedication when it comes to safety and quality of cars. It was founded by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf LarssonLatin in Gothenburg, Sweden on April 14, 1927.

Innovations in safety and environmental care continued apace with crumple zones, rear facing child seats, collapsible steering columns, side collision protection and the three-way catalytic converter were also emphasized in their later car models.

Holding true to its image as a car manufacturer that gives high priority to safety, Volvo launched the Volvo 960 model in the autumn of 1990 just in time for the 1991 model year. It won the “Prince Michael Road Safety Award” and the “Autocar & Motor” prize for showcasing outstanding safety features.

The 1991 Volvo 960 was originally produced to be able to have a substitute to the retiring Volvo 760. This model is available in two versions – the 4-door sedan and the 5-door estate car. It was also offered in most markets with an all-new aluminum 24-valve DOHC inline six-cylinder engine. The 1992 model on the other hand saw the U.S. introduction of a 960 with the DOHC six-cylinder engine.

The 1992 960 model had more shapely seats and re-designed seat belts with hydraulic pretensioners, the 1993 model had more ergonomic shifter and the 1994 model saw the introduction of dual front airbags in some markets. The 1995 960 model, on the other hand, underwent radical changes with its more aerodynamic front end, and more body coloured panels. Instead of conventional coil springs, Volvo used a single transverse fiberglass leaf spring. Production of the 960 ended in 1998, with the 1998 model year vehicles renamed as the Volvo S90/Volvo V90.

The Volvo 960 series created the sporty image of vehicles and were regarded to be very much refined, strong-structured, and well-mannered. The Volvo 960 Parts were significantly re-engineered and improved to strengthen safety, improve performance and increase the power they deliver. Other features that were emphasized were he elements of handling, easy maneuvering and precision in driving. Of course, the importance of safety was the 960 model’s most important asset.

A Volvo 960 is one car that’s all worth the money when it comes to safety and dependability. Maintenance of your Volvo 960 Parts can dramatically improve your car’s performance and will make you enjoy more of your Volvo 960 for a longer period of time without the troubles.

The Volvo radiator is designed to dissipate the heat which the coolant has absorbed from the engine. It . It might leak overheat and can cause engine problems. To prevent this from happening, be sure regularly to fill it up with water. The Volvo oxygen sensor, on the other hand, helps in increasing fuel economy and in lowering exhaust emissions. Most importantly, it also helps in better performance of the engine and reducing air pollution. It should also be checked regularly. The Volvo exhaust system is one of the most important systems in your car that need to be maintained properly for it is the one that cleans the excess gases used during the combustion before they are sent out of your car. It is also important that the exhaust system be checked every now and then.

These Volvo 960 parts are just some of the parts that deserve only the best maintenance. All the other parts which include condensers, bumpers, carpets, catalytic converter, door and door glass, electrical part, engine part, hood, hubcaps, mirror and many more, should not be taken for granted since each part plays a vital function in making your Volvo 960 work properly. Every Volvo 960 part should be replaced immediately when needed to prevent further damage and greater repair costs.

Volvo C30 Targets Generation Y

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008
volvo
Glady Reign asked:



The Volvo C30, the newest entry-level of the automaker, has one great mission to do – and that is to attract the young generation drivers and make a purchase.

Volvo runs the extra mile to promote its compact hatchback. As a fact, it is going outside its comfort zones by invoking a new maxim: “The Volvo you have when you don’t want a Volvo.” The hatchback is especially engineered to respond to the modern needs of customers without compromising affordability. The four-seat hatchback will be the cheapest Volvo in the showroom when it goes on sale this April. The car, which is slotted under the Volvo S40 sedan, is priced at $34,450.

“The Volvo C30’s target audience does not currently shop Volvo,” said Alan Desselss, the managing director for Volvo Cars Australia. “The C30 heralds a whole new era for us. It will bring people into the brand that would not previously have considered a Volvo.”

When asked about the convincing power of the C30, Desselss has this to say: “We’re not out to convince them of anything. Our target audience is smart. They are well informed and they do their research. So we are going to engage them. We’re going to ask them for their opinion on the car. Do they love it, or hate it? Do they want it, or not?” Desselss further noted, “The C30 is a departure from the traditional Volvo mindset. It’s not a family car. It will appeal to a younger buyer, an active single or couple. And, at the moment, just one-in-eight Volvo buyers are in the ‘pre-family’ phase of their life.”

The automaker noted that majority of its consumers are aged between 36 and 54. Desselss believes the Volvo C30 will resonate well with the under-35s group. The Volvo C30’s goal is to bring customers into the ‘family’ earlier than any vehicle in its current lineup can. Desselss added, “We anticipate that three of every four C30 buyers will have not owned a Volvo before.”

The Volvo C30 hatchback shares much of its auto parts with its sibling - the bigger S40 sedan. The Volvo steering rack, suspension, engines and some body panels are the same. Volvo Cars, the Swedish brand of the Ford Motor Co., allowed the C30 to use some components of the Focus including its turbocharged engine. “The diesel engine it uses is a very advanced unit, and costs significantly more than a petrol engine to produce,” said Desselss. “We think buyers will be attracted to the diesel for environmental reasons.”

Todd Hallenbeck, the Volvo spokesman, said, “We expect they will know these things and we’re not going to try and hide it. We think they will see the value, refinement, resale and other advantages that the C30 has. “We’d love to steal sales from the Focus XR5. It’s a competitor just like the Audi A3, BMW 1-Series and Volkswagen Golf.”

The Volvo 740: the Most Reliable Sedan of Its Time

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008
volvo
Glady Reign asked:



In 1982, Volvo introduced to the market their luxurious 760 sedan. This is actually a part of their efforts to place themselves among the prestigious group of luxury car makers. While the Volvo 760 is a luxury car in itself, it also posseses the safety that all Volvo cars have the reputation of having, and this fact makes this a car not only luxurious vehicle but also safe and sturdy unit which is what Volvo is known for.

From the development of the Volvo 760 comes another model which is designated as the Volvo 740. The model is a more simply equipped car which shares the same platform and design concept of the 760. While it may lack the luxurious amenities employed by the Volvo 760, the Volvo 740 is far more superior to the Volvo 200 series when it comes to style, performance and luxury.

The Volvo 740 was introduced to the US market in 1985 and production was discontinued in 1992. And throughout that time, the model has been known to be one of the most reliable 4-door sedans of its time considering the low number of engineering limitations and solid build quality which Volvo is known for. A testament to the car’s reliability is a large number of these cars still being used today even though it has been out of production for 15 years now. The cars’ lengthy service time is due to its sturdy construction and also through the use of high performance Volvo 740 parts and engines that are built to last a very long time.

The Volvo 740, for most of its lifetime, has remained relatively unchanged, but during the latter stages of the car’s production life, it has received minor changes in the design as well as in its mechanical aspects. In 1990, the Volvo 740 series received a new composite headlamps and tail lights similar to those employed by the Volvo 780 series cars. The dashboard of the cars in the series also received newer looks straight out of the more luxurious Volvo 760. These changes in the design of the cars are an effort to elevate the aesthetic value of the cars to better compete with competitors known for producing stylish cars.

The design of the cars in the Volvo 740 series not only received improved styling but the engine was also upgraded to give the cars better performance. The B230 engine employed by the vehicles received bigger 13 mm. connecting rods in 1990. The Volvo 740 turbocharged engines switched from the Garrett T3-series turbocharger to the Mitsubishi TD04 series which decreases the turbo lag but lowers the top-end performance of the engine. The fuel system also undergone improvements, from LH-Jettronic 2.2 it was upgraded to 2.4. The newer and better fuel system allows onboard diagnostics that are easily accessible under the hood. This also increased the engine’s performance and its reliability. Another mechanical upgrade it received towards the end of its run is the use of electrical engine cooling fan which replaced the mechanical one previously employed by previous Volvo 740s.

The upgrades that the Volvo 740 cars received on their latter day of production proved invaluable to their performance. The improvement in the fuel system and the turbocharger further optimizes the capacity of the engine. These improvements allow Volvo 740s to still perform at a high performance up to this day. Furthermore, the safety features employed by the cars make this car not only road worthy in terms of performance but also in terms of safety. The combination of reliability and safety makes this car a real gem in the collection in the entire lineup of Volvo cars in the company’s 80 years of existence.
