Unveiled in May is the Volvo S80, the first car based on Volvo’s new large-car platform. Its many innovations include front-wheel drive powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine, the Inflatable Curtain (IC) system, the Whiplash Protection System (WHIPS), an integrated GSM telephone and the use of sophisticated IT technology. It is also the world’s first car with an Environmental Product Declaration.

The last rear-wheel-drive Volvo ever made, a Volvo 940, comes off the Torslanda production line. The 940, S90 and V90 models are all discontinued in this year. A total of 667,000 of them were made.
