2013 will be the last year for the Volvo C70 convertible, according to Volvo’s website which states that production will stop after this year. This isn’t too surprising, as the Swedish plant that produces the C70 was scheduled to close in 2013.
The Volvo C70 was originally a two-door coupe and soft-top convertible introduced in the US in 1998. The second generation of the C70, which debuted in 2006, was a hardtop convertible model with a 2.5-liter turbocharged five-cylinder engine.
Rumor has it that Volvo may eventually replace the C70 with a production version of the Volvo…

Our own Tom Wood VolvoService Manager Bill Demaree is looking for your help to make a difference in our community!
He has recently become affiliated with the Society of St. Vincent dePaul, a shelter that is looking for people to donate bikes for our local homeless population. These adult bikes, in working or non-working condition, can help them become mobile to find work, shelter, and food. Bill himself has already donated a few bikes, and has found five more to give them just by spreading the word. Do you have any gently used bikes around your house that you…
Well, now we know! Volvo has debuted a concept coupe that is a definite departure from their current design language. The elegant new Volvo Concept Coupé is the first of a series of three concept cars that reveal the design possibilities created by the company’s new Scalable Product Architecture.
The visual impact of the new proportions is most powerful when viewing the Volvo Concept Coupé from the side. The distance between the dashboard and the front axle is extended and the greenhouse has been moved slightly rearwards.
A low hood, roof, and the five-spoke, 21-inch wheels also contribute to…
What could that possibly mean? Volvo
released a new teaser video today that promises their 'vanilla days'
are over, and that we can expect a return to exciting, iconic design.
The date at the end of the video is August 29th, but the video
description mentions Frankfurt. The Frankfurt Auto Show starts September

then. Stay tuned! As soon as we know, we...

Each month, Volvo’s President and CEO John Maloney, selects a Volvo Saved My Life story to share during a company-wide meeting with the employees at Volvo. This month’s story comes from Steve C. and his Volvo XC60:
"While leaving work for lunch, I was hit by a large delivery van at an intersection of a freeway service road. The vehicle was traveling in excess of 45mph – it had ignored a stop sign and all the cars that were also stopped at the intersection. To this day I don’t know if the vehicle rolled or was just slammed…
