Wanting to add a smaller model to its range, Volvo buys a 33 per cent stake in the car division of DAF in the Netherlands.

The Volvo Experimental Safety Car (VESC) is presented. Virtually a laboratory on wheels, it has been developed to test a whole range of safety systems, such as airbags, ABS brakes and telescopic bumpers.

Introduced into production models this year are hazard warning lights, seat belt reminders and child safety locks for rear doors.

Volvo Cars (North America) stacked seven 140 sedans to showcase the strength of Swedish hardtops.

The three-point safety belt in rear seat is introduced.
