We often hear all about the recall business and how manufacturers face the wall when it comes to older cars and whatever problems they may have developed. What doesn’t really come to our attention is what happens after these recalls are carried through. In Volvo’s case we’re going to have the news in a different […]
Sweden is a wonderful country. Among the many reasons behind that statement we find how serious they are about having their own touring car racing series. Known as the Swedish Touring Car Championship for a while it recently got itself a re-brand into the Swedish Racing Elite League is quite the pretty affair. Sure, it’s […]
The Swedish have finally announced the price they’ll be asking for the latest limited edition model of their 2012 Volvo C70. Called the Inscription Edition, was announced just over a month ago and it is one of the last efforts the company will undertake in convertible creating convertibles. All the changes brought along by the […]
Just as I was complaining about the manufacturers giving us a lot more minor tweaks and facelifts than usual, Volvo pours some more gas on the fire. The Swedes have recently announced a small series of even smaller details being updated on their popular XC90 SUV in order to make it a 2012 model. To […]
Despite a sustained period of silence on behalf of the Swedish company things have been tense for them over the last few months. Happily though, that series of doom & gloom moments has been wiped away by how Saab was able to seal the deal with the Chinese at Pang Da and another company from […]
German car companies are doing great, Japanese ones are recovering after a massive disaster, American car makers are recovering after a financial problem but the Swedish ones are still on the edge of the cliff. After Saab’s continuous issues of recent times, Volvo now announces that they need to tighten their belts and that they […]
Saab’s tricky financial situation isn’t exactly looking up despite the recent update of Chinese collaborations with Pang Da. The last we heard from the Swedish didn’t really sound as bad as the usual stuff of recent situations but I wouldn’t exactly be ready to pop the cork with their management. Saab announced their resuming of […]
The Swedish at Volvo got the ultimate wake up call and in the end they made their comeback. Sadly, not the same can be said of their co-nationals at Saab. Saab’s ability to handle their products, selling them and eventually making a profit isn’t likely to be used for examples in business colleges around the […]
The original Volvo XC90 was a great attempt from the Swedish towards making an SUV they way parents wanted it as opposed to how off-road enthusiasts did. In a recent announcement we’ve been told they plan on making a brand new version of the Volvo XC90 and this time they are going to overcome some […]
I don’t like it, I’m sure plenty of others will not find the Volvo Universe concept very appealing either, but why all the hate? Simply because whereas the Swedish at Volvo have recently turned themselves around into a pleasant direction, one which I really like.
We already know Italians make their cars with a bit more of a visual flair than other nations, but can they be persuaded to buy something from those nations? Volvo certainly thinks their C30 can cut the mustard, but even so, they decided to help along sales in Italy with this special edition.
The Swedish haven’t been selling that many cars lately no matter if its Volvo or Saab but when it comes to Koenigsegg low sales are part of the point. Given that the Trevita was only made in three units, running into the same car at the lights is pretty much impossible. The odds of that […]
The IIHS testing is clearly known as being some of the most rigorous ones a car may ever have to come against but if there was ever a car maker to be ideal for them it’s Volvo. Their latest model to hit the U.S. market, the 2012 Volvo S60 has just been put through its […]
Safety in cars and Swedish built may often come up in conversation but for several years that wasn’t necessarily the case as Koenigsegg came into the equation. Koenigsegg make some of the fastest and rarest cars in the world and their most recent creation, the Agera R was revealed just a few weeks ago. This […]
We may be joking about claiming that Saab had a bullet fly by their ear and another one headed in between both of them it seems like the Swedish really get cracking on stuff once they speak about it. It’s been less than a month since Saab first told us about a baby step taking […]
If you were tired about hearing from Saab about their products, facilities and so on perhaps you’d like to hear about something more excited from the Swedish company’s owners. The folks at Spyker reckon that 2011 calls for a change and the one they have in mind is of very special quality.
I’ll say this from the offset, I am a fan of Saab, I just love the way these cars make you feel; different, special. But sometimes I sift through the news they put out and just hit myself on the forehead, and say: what were you thinking of man?
A few days ago we found out that the Swedish at Saab are still having some sort of trouble selling cars so they’re going to cut back on costs. One of the first costs they hit is the workforce needed to make more cars than they sell.
Let’s be honest, it was inevitable that a company that has been marketing themselves as the sensible choice ever since they started would be interested in showing the world that they are saving the world. And if there ever was a company that sold themselves as sensible, it was the Swedes at Volvo. So it […]
It seems that after launching a sports sedan in Paris the Swedish at Volvo are really going down into the performance business. Their latest announcement is hitting with a rather different punch than that of a sporty family car.
