Volvo presents its Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), a camera-based system which monitors the driver’s potential blind spot, a world-first for cars.

The company also presents DMIC (Door Mounted Inflatable sips bag) its side airbag concept for convertibles, another world-first.

The Volvo XC90 now has another engine option, a totally new compact V8 designed by Volvo and manufactured by Yamaha.

Volvo Car's new V8 engine is world's first V8 to comply with ULEV II.

Two exciting new concept cars are presented in the course of the year:

The Volvo 3CC (sustainable mobility concept along with its Tandem predecessor).

The Volvo YCC (Your Concept Car) is developed by an all-female project team in Gothenburg, a fact which attracts much attention before it is even built.

And there is another sales record: retail deliveries of just under 460,000 cars.

Introduction of particulate filters for diesel engines.
