Thor’s Hammer is the nickname given to Volvo headlights since the second-generation XC90 debuted in 2015 on the SPA platform. It’s a distinctive shape that, well, looks like a hammer ;-). The headlights got the moniker Thor’s hammer because Volvo is Swedish, and modern-day Sweden was the center of the Viking Age.

 

In Norse mythology, Thor is the hammer-wielding god of thunder, lightning, storms, oak trees, strength, the protection of mankind, in addition to hallowing, and fertility. — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thor
