The Volvo 780, a luxurious two-door model, becomes the new top-of-the-range Volvo. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show, it has been developed in collaboration with Bertone of Italy.

Volvo Car BV in the Netherlands presents the Volvo 480 ES, a four-seater with sporty lines. It is the first Volvo with front-wheel drive.

Wagon models of the Volvo 740 and 760 are launched this year – a new generation of wagons. Volvo can now offer wagon versions of all its sedans.

Output and retail deliveries are up for the sixth year running, and now approaching 400,000 cars a year.

Planning begins for a new production plant in Uddevalla, north of Gothenburg. Meanwhile, the plant in Ghent, Belgium, celebrates its twentieth anniversary.
