Når vi snakker om stasjonsvogner til familiesegmentet, er det få bilprodusenter som kan vise til så lange tradisjoner som Volvo Cars. Derfor knytter det seg store forventninger til 18. februar, og lanseringen av Volvos nye V90 i Stockholm.
On a nice summer Friday in 1956, Volvo showed a completely new car – the Amason. Yes, it was called exactly that, with an "s". But hardly had there been even time to pronounce that name until a controversy about the name started. The car, however, was to become the great seller for Volvo for more than ten years time.
"A new Volvo Estate car. An exclusive estate car, designed for European conditions enters the Swedish market. It will be shown for the first time at the Stockholm Motor Show. It is Volvo's much longed for Amazon estate."
This model can be described as an estate based on the 121/122S (Amazon). It made its debut at the Stockholm Motor Show in February 1962. This extension of the model range gave Volvo the most extensive programme in one and the same car family than ever before.
