Volvo S90 Ambience concept is complete with light show and scents

Mon, 23 Apr 2018 09:15:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,

(image) We've written about Volvo's interior concepts earlier, including different Lounge Consoles presented in 2015 and 2016 for the XC90 and S90, respectively. The idea with these is that a sumptuous Volvo interior is turned into something even more rarified, as the backseat passenger either wants to get some work done while on the move, or to just relax in a comfortable ambience. That basic idea has been honed again for this year's Beijing Auto Show, where Volvo debuts the S90 Ambience Concept.

Lidar maker Velodyne is confused by fatal Uber crash

Mon, 26 Mar 2018 08:45:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,,,,,,

(image) Lidar maker Velodyne has put out a statement concerning the fatal accident between an Uber autonomous vehicle and a pedestrian in Tempe, Arizona, last week. Uber's self-driving Volvo XC90 uses a Velodyne lidar (light detection and range) unit, said to be an HDL-64E. That model has a 360-degree field-of-view and a 120-meter range, so one of the big questions has been why didn't the sensors pick up pedestrian Elaine Herzberg before the vehicle hit her. Velodyne president Marta Thoma Hall told Bloo

Car owners in survey worry about pet safety but could do more about it

Fri, 23 Mar 2018 17:20:00 EDT

Filed under: ,

(image) It's always fun to see a dog hanging its head out a passenger window of a passing car, its tongue trailing in the wind. But many people probably don't think about the safety implications of that unrestrained pet and what would happen if that car were to crash at high speed. That's also the topic behind a new survey of American car and pet owners from Volvo Car USA.

2019 Volvo XC40 Drivers’ Notes Review | Style on a smaller scale

Wed, 14 Mar 2018 12:00:00 EDT

Filed under: ,,,,

(image) The 2019 Volvo XC40 is the entry-level crossover for the Swedish automaker. It takes the same basic formula that's worked well for the XC90 and XC60 and distills it into a smaller, cuter and less expensive package. Like the competition from BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and more, the XC40 sells as much on style as it does on practicality or drivability.

Volvo shows off Roger Moore's saintly Volvo 1800 S

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 08:45:00 EST

Filed under: ,,,,,

(image) Even though Aston Martins and especially the DB5 are inseparably linked with James Bond lore, the late Roger Moore never drove an Aston Martin in a 007 film. Moore's disco-era Bond was instead seen in a flashy, wedge-shaped Lotus Esprit, and only in "The Persuaders" or "Cannonball Run" did he choose an Aston. But before any of those cars, before Moore's Bond career, there's one specific long-nosed coupe of Italianate design that's probably the perfect Roger Moore car. The Volvo 1800 S, from "The
