    The theme for Volvo Cars at the world's biggest classic car show, Techno Classica, will be “60 years of estate heritage”.
    Few car companies can claim the same pedigree as Volvo Cars when it comes to the design and manufacture of family estates. That is why the news that Volvo will reveal its new V90 estate on February 18 in Stockholm is so widely-anticipated and significant.
    July 4th 2013 marks the 60th anniversary of the Volvo Duett - Volvo's first series-produced estate car and the starting point of the company's proud estate car tradition.
    In 2009, the light delivery vehicle Volvo 445 which brought about the Duett and by that started Volvo's tradition of estate cars turns 60. This is what happened.
    At the time of its launch, there was scarcely a car in existence that was more practical than the model Volvo unveiled exactly 50 years ago, in summer 1953. Half a century and millions of estate cars later, the concept of practicality still remains the talking point of these Volvo cars.
