The full range of Volvo DRIVe models will be on display for a special Open Weekend and Test Drive event during the weekend of the 6th & 7th February at Volvo Dealers throughout Ireland. Volvo has one of the most comprehensive environmentally focused ranges of cars in the premium market with the DRIVe models. The DRIVe (pronounced Drive-e) badge is applied to any model that has best in class environmental performance.
Full DRIVe Range on display
The full DRIVe range will be on display from the outstandingly efficient Volvo C30 DRIVe with Start/ Stop technology that produces just 99g/ km of CO2 and uses only 3.8L/ 100km (equivalent to 74.3mpg) through the S40 & V50 DRIVe variants to the S80 & XC60 versions. The S80 is a large, luxurious executive saloon which in the DRIVe guise is fitted with a highly efficient 1.6 litre diesel engine. In recent road tests it has received excellent reviews both here in Ireland and abroad for its real world drivability. Falling into Band A for VRT it costs just €104 p.a. for road tax. The XC60 DRIVe is a front wheel drive version of Volvo's new family sized SUV with a Band D VRT rating resulting in a €447 p.a. road tax, a clear advantage when judged against the competition.
There are a variety of special offers available for customers who place orders during the open weekend, including the stylish C30 from an amazing €19,995* when bought with the benefit of the Government Scrappage Scheme.
But even when the Government Scrappage scheme does not apply all customers can benefit from Volvo's Enviro-Enhancement package, which is worth up to €3,630**, when purchasing one of the Volvo DRIVe range during the open weekend.
So whether your in the market to buy a new or used car or simply interested to find out about the new range of fuel efficient Volvo Cars, then pop down to your local Volvo Dealer and take a spin in a Volvo DRIVe.
