On the 25th of February, Volvo released a statement emphasizing the changes coming to the V90 and S90 models. Some of these changes comprise refined interiors and improved sound systems. However, these changes aren't limited to the interior Volvo parts. The exterior changes include a new full LED-powered signature lighting, a new spoiler design, and lowering the front bumper.
However, the press release doesn't solely focus on these two model lines. It goes on to emphasize that the 48-volt mild-hybrid powertrain is now available on each of the Volvo models. This, coupled with their fully plug-in and electric hybrid models, makes them quite a green contender in the auto market. Additionally, they describe their mild-hybrid powertrain later in the press release.
The mild hybrids of 'Volvo Cars' provide drivers with emission reductions and up to 15% fuel savings in real-world driving. The brake-by-wire system is one of the fascinating Volvo parts, communicating with the energy recovery system, reducing fuel emissions and consumption by recovering kinetic energy under braking.
They indicate that a hybrid Volvo is available for every purchaser. While this may not be entirely true, it's certainly a strong move in that direction.
With the availability of EV on the Volvo line in abundance, it's easy to forget that other Volvo firms are also leading the way in car designs that are environmentally conscious. They have also announced that the Geneva Auto Show will host a new EV from their Polestar brand in March. The Polestar Precept is a declaration of their direction for their line.
According to Thomas Ingenlath, the CEO of Polestar, Precept is a vision, a declaration of what Polestar stand for and what makes the brand relevant. The car is an answer to the clear challenges our industry and society face.
The Precept fuses sustainability with luxury by experimenting with novel materials and reusing materials in the design. Interior Volvo parts are created from flax-based composites that reduce plastic waste by 80% and are more lightweight than conventional plastics. Other interior Volvo parts reuse materials: the carpet materials are reclaimed fishing nets, the headrest materials and bolsters come from recycled cork vinyl, and the seat surface materials are recycled PET bottles that have been 3D knitted. Oh, it is also beautiful and sleek, so here's hoping the Precept becomes more than a prototype pretty soon.
