A whole new generation of cars is presented this summer – the Volvo 240 (six variants) and the 260 (two versions). Their distinctive front-end design has clearly been influenced by the Volvo Experimental Safety Car.

February brings the opening of a new Volvo car factory in Kalmar, Sweden. The plant’s appearance is unconventional, as are its production layout and working methods. Cars being built are transported on special carriers, and staff works on multiple tasks in small teams.

At a time when automobile bumpers were scarce, Volvo introduced energy-absorbent bumpers.
