Volvo S80 Executive

Volvo S80 Executive features unique details and a very rich content that reinforce its position as Volvo Car Corporation’s top-of-the-line sedan.

The Volvo S80 is the most exclusive Volvo sedan model – and the Executive version features details that emphasize the sober Scandinavian design and the sophisticated comfort of the spacious sedan.

The Executive badge gives a discreet hint that this is an S80 beyond the norm. Inside, the upgraded S80 Executive is the first Volvo model with an instrument panel top in leather, available in espresso brown or off black. Among the interior details that give the S80 Executive a more exclusive character are ventilated soft leather seats with massage function, leather door panels, an integrated analogue clock on the instrument panel and the aluminium centre consol storage.

Specially designed, extra thick carpets reinforce the sober impression. The opportunity to install a fridge in the rear seat, combined with a set of Swedish crystal glasses, also contributes to the enhanced feeling of luxury and comfort.

Volvo’s new Flexifuel 2.5FT Engine

14 05 2009

Flexifuel 2.5FTVolvo’s E85 Flexifuel engine just got some HP.  The new five-cylinder 2.5-liter Flexifuel engine, dubbed the 2.5FT gains 30hp over its predecessor the 2.5F.  With the 30hp gain, the engine also cuts fuel costs by 5-6% ,depending on transmission.

“This technical advance shows that we can give buyers of our larger cars an attractive combination of enhanced driving pleasure and better environmental properties. Few, if any, of our competitors can match our ever-wider and more efficient green-car model range,” says Magnus Jonsson, Senior Vice President, Product Development at Volvo Cars. He adds: “The new 2.5FT variants will be a particularly attractive choice for company car customers. Since the hike in torque gives far better pulling power, driveability in both the Volvo S80 and Volvo V70 gets a real boost. At the same time, fuel economy is noticeably better. Fuel consumption will drop most significantly among cars that cover long distances on the highway and motorway.”

The 2.5FT will be available in June on the S80 and V70 models.
