Dashboards, safety belt buckles - it is not just engines that produce emissions. That's why Volvo cars don't contain certain materials that trigger allegies or give off toxins. We have allergy filters, pollution filters, controlling the amount of pollens, toxins and gases that enter the cab.
Volvo cars also eliminate 95% to 99% of its carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbon emissions. In 1991 our Torslanda paintshop was declared the world's cleanest. In 1974 Volvo created the landmark oxidizing catalytic converter, the forerunner of today's units.
