The last of the Volvo 400 series cars is made in November, taking the total for the whole series to almost 700,000 units.

The Volvo 850 Bi-Fuel is launched. It can run on either petrol or CNG.

Another new arrival is the Volvo 850 AWD, the brand’s first all-wheel drive.

The Paris Motor Show is chosen for the première of the Volvo C70 coupe.

The Volvo S70 and V70 are presented – the successors to the Volvo 850. In the brand’s new model-naming system, S stands for saloon or sedan, V is for versatility (wagon models), and C stands for coupe or convertible. The Volvo 960 saloon now becomes the S90 and the 960 wagon turns into the V90.

A very big milestone is passed this year – Volvo makes its ten-millionth car. It is a green Volvo 960 Royal built at the Volvo plant in Malaysia.
