Volvo launches refreshed media website

  • Passwords no longer needed
  • Cleaner look and enhanced functionality and navigation
  • Launches live September 10, 2009

ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (Sept. 8, 2009) - Volvo Cars of North America, LLC, (VCNA) today announced its refreshed media website,, will go live Sept. 10, just ahead of the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show where Volvo Car Corporation will take the wraps off the refreshed C30 and C70.


"Delivering a premium experience for our media subscribers is a top priority," said Geno Effler, VCNA's vice president, public affairs. "The new look makes it easier than ever to navigate to whatever Volvo story a journalist may be looking for."


Visitors to the site also will no longer need to use a username and password, though access to download broadcast-quality videos, subscription email service and the Newsmarket still will require the user to register or login with a username and password.  It also will be easier to download releases, photos, specifications and videos with an enhanced user "Briefcase" that allows visitors to simply click a check box to quickly add and access the information they need.


The new look follows months of behind-the-scenes work on a global scale. All Volvo newsrooms that are part of the Volvo Cars Global media website group (including Volvo Car Corporation and major markets such as Sweden, U.K., Germany, Italy, Canada and the Netherlands) will receive the new look.


Current users of any of these sites will notice no disruption in any of the subscription services they already use, making the transition completely transparent. The sites are optimized to run on Internet Explorer 6, Firefox and Safari. Should you experience any technical difficulties, support is available at or by phone: + 1 204 927 1808.
