Fuel consumption
Since a large part of a car’s total environmental impact stems from its use, the emphasis of Volvo Cars’ environmental work is on reducing fuel consumption, carbon dioxide emissions and other air pollutants. Volvo cars have competitive fuel consumption in each of their respective classes. Lower fuel consumption generally results in lower emission of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide.

Contributing to a better environment
An energy-efficient and economical car can contribute to reduced environmental impact and also involve reduced costs for the owner of the car. As the driver, it is easy to reduce fuel consumption and thereby save money and contribute to a better environment – here is some advice:

  1. Plan for an effective average speed. Speeds above approx. 80 km/h (approx. 50 mph) and below 50 km/h (approx. 30 mph) lead to increased energy con-sumption.
  2. Follow the Service and Warranty Book-let’s recommended intervals for service and maintenance of the car.
  3. Avoid letting the engine idle – switch off the engine when stationary for longer peri-ods. Pay attention to local regulations.
  4. Plan the journey – a lot of unnecessary stops and uneven speed contribute to increased fuel consumption.
  5. Use preconditioning* before starting in cold conditions – it improves starting capacity and reduces wear in cold weather. The engine reaches normal oper-ating temperature more quickly, which decreases consumption and reduces emissions.

The material used in the interior of a Volvo is carefully selected and has been tested in order to be pleasant and comfortable. Some of the details are hand-made, such as the seams of the steering wheel that are sewn by hand. The interior is monitored in order not to emit strong odours or substances that cause discomfort in the event of e.g. high heat and bright light.

Volvo workshops and the environment
Regular maintenance creates conditions for long service life and low fuel consumption for your car. In this way, you also contribute to a cleaner environment. When Volvo’s workshops are entrusted with the service and maintenance of your car it becomes part of Volvo’s system. Volvo makes clear demands regarding the way in which workshop premises shall be designed in order to prevent spills and discharges into the environment. The workshop staff have the knowledge and the tools required to guarantee good environmental care.
