The making of the perfect drive
More than meets the eye
We take a look at the exclusive exterior styling elements designed for the new Volvo S90 and V90, and meet the designers who created them. But there’s a lot more to exterior styling than meets the eye. Not only do they improve a car’s look, they can also improve its performance.
A unique way of connecting people
In the past, keeping people connected was a lot more difficult than it is today. It took ingenuity, risk and a whole lot of manpower. We explore Sweden’s oldest and most ambitious way of keeping people connected – the Göta Canal.
Share. Deliver. Connect. With a range of connected services the new XC40 is a mobile hub that makes life less complicated. We look at three ways that it can help you free up your time.
Connectivity In Berlin
After travelling the world for 12 years, Cologne-born entrepreneur Gundula Cöllen decided it was time to return to Germany and reconnect with her homeland. And when it came to choosing a city in which to settle down in and start up a new business, she only had one place in mind – Berlin.
The race to the horizon
The fascinating background and history of the Volvo Ocean Race have turned it into one of the best-known and toughest endurance races in the sporting calendar. For four and a half decades, participants have challenging themselves and each other as they sail its course. In this article, we will trace the race back to its beginning - and beyond, looking at the developments that shaped modern sea travel and made it possible in the first place. We trace the history of the race all the way back to the opening of the Panama and Suez canals, and then how - decades later - Robin Knox-Johnson became the first man to sail single-handedly round the planet. We then describe the foundation of the race in the 70s, and the developments that turned it into the event we know today - with its cutting-edge boats, teams of world champion sailors and non-stop coverage.
