Bonus! Volvo Facts
- There’s a Volvo innovation in nearly every car on the road today. In 1976, we launched the Lambda sensor, which converts toxic engine fumes into less harmful gasses. Our cars are kind to the environment every step of the way. Every Volvo factory in Europe is powering by green electricity, and all Volvos are designed to be 85% recyclable and 95% recoverable.
