Volvo Cars reduced average fleet emissions by 8.4 per cent from 2012 to 2013, according to figures monitored by European car industry association ACEA. This underlines Volvo Cars’ position at the forefront of the European car industry in bringing down emission levels and further cements its environmental credentials.

Volvo Cars has revealed a glimpse of its strategic thinking at the Geneva Motor Show, unveiling a new V60 Twin Engine version, the European debut of several new product variants and completing its roll-out of the celebrated Drive-E powertrain line-up across the product portfolio.
