The quietest place
Here at Volvo Cars, we're continually inspired by the Swedish landscape. Like Muttos - a national park in the far north of the country where the vast, sublime prehistoric forest becomes open to everybody.
Wake up and get some sleep
We travelled to New York to discover how drivers stay alert behind the wheel in the city that never sleeps. Impaired reaction time, judgment and vision. These are just some of the effects of drowsy driving.
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.
