VOLVO 1800ES IN PRODUCTION 1971-1973

 

In the autumn of 1971, a new version of Volvo's famous 1800 model was presented. The new version was called the 1800ES.

 

The 1800ES had a newly designed rear end compared with the previous versions of the 1800. The roofline had been extended and the car had a profile that was more reminiscent of an estate. The 1800ES had increased luggage capacity to provide extra space for golfing or hunting equipment, for example.

 

Under the surface, the technology in the 1800ES was the same as that in the other 1800 models.

 

The new version was produced for two model years, 1972 and 1973. In 1972, both versions were produced simultaneously, but only the 1800ES was produced in 1973.

 

When the last cars were built in 1973 and production was wound up, this was due to the increasingly rigorous safety requirements in the USA, in particular, which would quite simply have been too expensive to comply with.
