The team are the first to announce an entry for what will be the 12th edition of the Volvo Ocean Race race, starting from Alicante in the second half of 2014. The Volvo Ocean Race all-female challengers are the first team to confirm an order for the new Volvo Ocean Race 65-foot one-design boat, details of which were announced by the race in June. The new Volvo Ocean Race high-performance boat is being built by a consortium of boatyards in the United Kingdom, France, Switzerland and Italy and will make it significantly cheaper for teams to mount a competitive campaign. The Volvo Ocean Race will ensure a minimum of eight boats are built, with the goal of getting between eight and 10 teams on the start line for the 12th edition of the race. The first of the boats will be finished in mid-2013. The Volvo Ocean Race new design puts less of a premium on physical strength, and means all-female teams should be competitive in the Volvo Ocean Race, which is one of sailing's Big Three events along with the America's Cup and the Olympics.The last time an all-female team competed in the Volvo Ocean Race was in 2001-02, when Lisa Charles (now Lisa McDonald) skippered Amer Sports Too. The first Volvo Ocean Race all-female team to compete were Maiden, skippered by Tracy Edwards, back in 1989-90. The full list is as follows: Volvo Ocean Race 1989-90 Maiden/Tracy Edwards Volvo Ocean Race 1993-94 US Women's Challenge/Nance Franck, later Heineken/Dawn Riley Volvo Ocean Race 1997-98 EF Education/Christine Guilou Volvo Ocean Race 2001-02 Amer Sports Too Lisa Charles (now McDonald) The last woman sailor in the Volvo Ocean Race was Adrienne Cahalan, who was navigator on Brasil 1 for a single leg in 2005-06. The 2014–15 Volvo Ocean Race will be the 12th edition of the round-the-world Volvo Ocean Race. For the first time, the Volvo Ocean Race will be a one-design. The Volvo One-Design was designed by Farr Yacht Design in response to concerns about safety and cost. The Volvo Ocean Race will ensure a minimum of eight boats are built. The aim is to reduce participation cost to around 15 million euros per entry. Volvo Ocean Race Defending champions, Groupama, have announced they will not compete again. Volvo Ocean Race Team SCA will field an all female crew. The rules allow all female crews to field three extra crew members. The entry is skippered by British yachtswoman Samantha Davies. Volvo Ocean Race Abu Dhabi Ocean Racing return and will again be skippered by Ian Walker. Volvo Ocean Race Team Brunel of the Netherlands have announced they will be entering the competition with seven-time participant Bouwe Bekking as skipper. Volvo Ocean Race Dongfeng of China is a half-Chinese amateur, half-International professional squad skippered by Charles Caudrelier. Volvo Ocean Race Team Alvimedica is the American entry in the race. The Turkish sponsored yacht is skippered by Charlie Enright. Volvo Ocean Race MAPFRE will be the home team to begin the race. The Spanish entry is skippered by Iker Martinez. The final Volvo Ocean Race boat, Team Vestas Wind, is sponsored by wind energy leader Vestas. The Danish registered squad is skippered by Australian Olympian Chris Nicholson. The race will again begin in Alicante before heading to Cape Town in South Africa. The race will also stop in Auckland, Abu Dhabi, Lisbon, Itajaí Sanya, Lorient and Newport, Rhode Island before ending in Gothenburg. The point standings will be done via low points. The winner of each leg/in-port race will receive 1 point, runner up will receive 2 points, and so on down to the final finisher who will receive 7 points. The organizers also removed the weighting of the open water legs which was deemed to significantly reduce the importance of the in-port regattas. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2014%E2%80%9315_Volvo_Ocean_Race

THANK YOU FOR DONATING :)) https://www.paypal.me/ak584 Volvo Trucks unveils highly anticipated new VNL series Volvo Trucks North America today revealed the new Volvo VNL series, a groundbreaking tractor that meets the needs of today’s long-haul trucking customers and professional drivers through cutting-edge innovations in efficiency, productivity, safety and uptime. Available in several configurations, including an all-new, 70-inch sleeper, the Volvo VNL series defines the shape of trucks to come. “The new Volvo VNL builds on our long-standing commitment to deliver the safest, most comfortable and most efficient long-haul truck on the market,” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North America. “Infused with new innovations and technologies, we’re proud to expand upon that commitment to our current and future customers with this new design.” Striking Exterior Design Designers of the new Volvo VNL combined elements of Volvo’s design language with dynamic new features. Swept back headlights include signature Volvo daytime running lights and frame a bold new Volvo grille and hood. Redesigned and repositioned engine air intakes allow for less turbulent intake air delivery. Airflow up and around the cab has also been optimized with new chassis and roof fairings. “While we wanted the new VNL to make a statement on the road, we knew that it also had to make a statement to our customers’ bottom lines” said Wade Long, director of product marketing for Volvo Trucks North America. “The incredible design elements that we’ve incorporated not only look great, but they add value for the customer. Whether it’s the sleek new bodywork that improves aerodynamics, or the new three-piece bumper that aids in repairability, every design change we’ve made has a purpose.” Productivity-Boosting Driver, Living Environments Productivity is directly affected by driver comfort, which is why the new Volvo VNL features an all-new dashboard which puts often-used controls within the driver’s reach. Centered in the gauge cluster is a configurable, five-inch color driver information display that provides trip and diagnostic data. The driver information display is customizable, ensuring that critical information is always available to the driver at a quick glance. An optional infotainment system is available, featuring a seven-inch color touchscreen, navigation and an exterior back-up camera. A premium audio system is integrated with the infotainment system, which also features Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay for the ultimate in connectivity. Additional apps can be downloaded to the infotainment system as well. A dash-top tray features 12-volt power and USB connectivity to keep devices fully powered. The new Volvo VNL is also equipped with Volvo’s smart steering wheel, putting controls for nearly all of the driver interface functions right at a driver’s fingertips. The smart steering wheel is attached to Volvo’s Perfect Position air-assisted, infinitely adjustable steering column, which enables drivers not only to tilt and telescope the steering column, but also tilt the steering wheel relative to the steering column. This lets drivers of all statures find the perfect steering wheel position and easily view the driver information display. A wide variety of seating options are available on the new Volvo VNL series. An increase in seat travel fore and aft, as well as up and down, improves driving ergonomics. Premium features like seat heating and ventilation are also available. “We relied on feedback from nearly 2,000 driver interviews to make sure the changes we were making aligned with drivers’ needs,” said Jason Spence, Volvo Trucks product marketing manager – long haul. “The results speak for themselves: our new VNL features the most comfortable, driver-friendly environment we’ve ever built.” That comfort extends to the four sleeper cab configurations available in the new Volvo VNL series. Designed to provide drivers a comfortable place to rest after a long day on the road, the sleeper options are packed with a number of space-saving, comfort-boosting innovations. Additionally, an all-new, full 70-inch sleeper is available in the Volvo VNL 760 and 740 models, taking Volvo’s legendary comfort to an all-time high. All VNL sleepers feature curved cabinets that open toward the back to maximize space, as well as an integrated, reclining bunk, which is a trucking industry first in North America. LED interior lighting reduces power consumption and provides softer lighting. A redesigned sleeper control panel allows drivers to control heating and cooling, and adjust the audio system from a more ergonomic position on the bunk. In addition, drivers can lock the doors or activate a panic alarm if needed.

Volvo Cars is a Swedish luxury vehicle manufacturer established in 1927 and headquartered on Hisingen, in Gothenburg. Since 2010 it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Geely of China, but the company is being prepared for stock market flotation. Volvo Cars was founded as a subsidiary of the ball bearing manufacturer SKF. When AB Volvo was introduced on the Stockholm stock exchange in 1935, SKF sold most of the shares in the company. Volvo Cars was owned by AB Volvo until 1999, when it was sold to the Ford Motor Company as part of its Premier Automotive Group. In 2010, the Geely Holding Group then acquired Volvo Cars from Ford. Volvo Cars manufactures and markets sport utility vehicles, station wagons, sedans, compact executive sedans, and coupes. With approximately 2,300 local dealers from around 100 national sales companies worldwide, Volvo Cars' largest markets are China, the United States, Sweden, and the other countries in the European Union. Volvo company was founded in 1927, in Gothenburg, Sweden, The company was created as a subsidiary company 100% owned by SKF. Assar Gabrielsson was appointed the managing director and Gustav Larson as the technical manager. Cars are driven by people. The guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo, therefore, is and must remain, safety — Assar Gabrielsson and Gustav Larson 1927 The trademark Volvo (which is Latin for I roll) was first registered by SKF the 11 May 1915 with the intention to use it for a special series of ball bearing for the American market but it was never used for this purpose (however in the application for the trademark, it was also designated for the purpose of automobiles). SKF trademark as it looks today was used instead for all the SKF-products. The first Volvo car left the assembly line on 14 April 1927, and was called Volvo ÖV 4. After this the young company produced closed top and cabriolet vehicles, which were designed to hold strong in the Swedish climate and terrain. In the registration application for Volvo logotype in 1927, they simply made a copy of the entire radiator for ÖV4, viewed from the front. Volvo Car Corporation was part of Ford Motor Company's Premier Automotive Group (PAG), along with Jaguar, Aston Martin and Land Rover. While part of the PAG, the company grew in its range of vehicles significantly. When the global economic crisis of 2008 threatened the US automakers, Swedish authorities became concerned about the fate of Volvo if Ford would file for bankruptcy. These concerns mounted after repeated mass-layoffs at Volvo. Ford announced in December 2008 that it was considering selling Volvo Cars. Initially, a sale price of US$6 billion was reported. Ford Motor Company offered Volvo Cars for sale in December 2008, after suffering losses that year. On 28 October 2009, Ford confirmed that, after considering several offers, the preferred buyer of Volvo Cars was Zhejiang Geely Holding Group, the parent of Chinese motor manufacturer Geely Automobile.It is the largest overseas acquisition by a Chinese automaker. Many remember Volvo from the TV show the Saint that saw Roger Moore driving a P 1800. An immediate classic. S642

Volvo Car UK and creative agency Grey London have teamed up with one of Sweden’s most respected music conductors to promote the V40 R-Design. In a filmic portrait, which will air on UK TV from January, Marie Rosenmir ponders her preoccupation with detail and its importance to the overall narrative, her sentiments echoing the design philosophy of the V40. Shot by British photographic / filmmaking collective Leila and Damien de Blinkk, it draws parallels with the fine craftsmanship of the V40 and the fine details of a symphony orchestra. In the build up to an opening night performance, the film shows Marie’s final preparations and meticulous consideration to the minute of the performance. Intercut with these observational shots are extreme close up shots of the V40’s numerous design details, such as the stitching on the leather upholstery, the illuminated gear shift, 17" Ixion Alloy Wheels and auto-folding power door mirrors. Andy Lockley, creative director, Grey London said:“It’s the combination of many different factors – some of which you are conscious of, but many of which you aren’t – which make driving a car unique or pleasurable. The V40 boasts lots of lovely, intricate design details, which in isolation may not seem particularly significant but when combined create an incredibly satisfying overall experience. We likened this to a really moving piece of music performed by an orchestra – each small component playing an important part in the overall piece. In this respect, the role of a conductor and of an automotive designer aren’t that different” Georgina Williams, Head of Marketing, Volvo Car UK, adds: “The ‘Life Is In The Details’ campaign continues to leverage our Swedish provenance and design philosophy which is proving so successful for our business and brand here in the UK. In the TV execution this is delivered via the musings of Marie Rosenmir’s craft. Set against the Swedish landscape and crafted design features of the V40, the complete piece aims to establish the V40 R-Design as a car for the discerning eye.” The film was shot on location in and around Gothenburg, the home of Volvo. While featuring the idiosyncratic Swedish landscape synonymous with the car brand, this story is set in a notably less rural environment to appeal to the V40’s more urban audience. It was entirely unscripted, with Grey and Volvo simply agreeing a creative intention, allowing De Blinkk the chance to shoot organically to capture an authentic, filmic language. The film features a bespoke music score written by award winning composer Tom Player, known for his work on The Hobbit and Game of Thrones. It is the second piece of work from Grey London for Volvo to hero a female driver in a traditionally male dominated category, following 2014’s The Swell for the XC60, which featured a female night surfer.

For the latest UAE Car Reviews checkout Motopedia.ae or our Youtube channel Motopediauae For the latest UAE Car Reviews checkout Motopedia.ae or our Youtube channel Motopediauae. Intro The Volvo XC60 is a great family SUV that provides great power, comfort and safety for the small family. With a new design, you get all this and a bit of style too. Exterior The XC60 stands out amongst an army of me too designed small SUV's. Its got the classic Volvo look in front with daytime running LED lights and a swept back nose that doesn't reek of aggression. But its not a meek looking car either and balances the difference quite well. At 9.1 inches, there's plenty of ground clearance making it quite practical for a weekend getaway in the wadi, and it is a practical daily commuter as well. The rear tailamps slither down from the roof to expand at the tailgate and look distinctive especially with the highly contoured rear design. Performance We drove the T5 R design, an All Wheel Drive, which produces 240 horsepower from 258 pounds of torque. While not massively powerful because the XC60 is a reasonably heavy car, it was nippy in the initial gears and the torque brought it alive as you accelerated. The 8 speed "Geartronic" transmission though was beautiful, providing smooth, fast shifting and keep the fuel economy low. There are Sport and Eco modes, allowing you to adjust your driving style for performance or economy. Even with its tall stance, the XC 60 stays firmly planted on the road. Not exactly sporty, but definitely inspiring dependability! Interior Volvo's interiors are always built with attention to detail. Each piece deliberate and always put together to last. It's good cross between functional and futuristic especially with the center "floating" panel that houses the communication, climate and audio. The dash is aimed at the driver, and may seem a bit business but the soft touch materials reek of high quality in the smallest places. The Volvo "Sensus" 7 inch display stands out as for the quality of its screen and graphics and overall, it fairly easy to use. Overall, it's quite a sober interior that will appeal to your sense of practicality and quality. Comfort & Safety The XC60 has some of the most comfortable seats, but definitely aimed at women as larger men will find the side bolsters a bit annoying, much like those in the Ranger Rover Evoque, also aimed at women. There's plenty of head and leg room up front, but Volvo's Achilles heel has always been rear legroom on most of their cars. They seem to be think the rear is only for children! The climate control is quick to cool the car, even on the UAE's hottest days, and the audio system, even if you get the basic one, is so much better than its competitors! There's about 30 cubic feet of space in the back, enough for the grocery run, and if you fold the rear seats down, you get another 37 cubic feet unfortunately, they don't fold down fully flat. If you have the money, you can buy some of the most safety tech including some exotic options automatic braking "City Safety" system, pedestrian warning, Roll Stability and Corner Traction Control in addition to adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and blind spot warning. Car Rating Performance - 4 Styling - 3 Drive & Feel - 4 Technology - 5 Price - 3 Fuel Economy - 5 Summary Pros Solid Stable Drive High quality interior materials Good Ground Clearance Dependability Cons Pricey Rear space Decidedly, this car seems to aimed at women, even on Volvo's own website, so it seems to us to be the Jumeirah Janes choice of car. Its practical, safe, and tech heavy, but will it be enough to lure women away from the infiniti's, Audi's and even the Korenan offerings? This is a very competitive segment. Check out your options with the Audi Q5, BMW X3, Lexus NX, and others on Motopedia.ae.

Facts - Volvo Cars Safety Centre 2010: - The Volvo Cars Safety Centre is designed to carry out advanced crash tests that contribute to increased knowledge and the development of safer Volvo cars. The laboratory makes it possible to replicate most of the accident scenarios that occur in real-life traffic. - The crash-test laboratory was inaugurated in 2000. - The crash test laboratory has a capacity to carry out more than 400 full-scale tests per year. - The crash-test laboratory has one fixed (154 metre) and one movable (108 metres) test track. The movable test track can be moved from 0 to 90 degrees to perform crashes such as frontal impacts, rear end collisions, side impacts, and collisions between two moving cars at different angles and speeds. - On the fixed test track, the maximum speed for a passenger car is 120 km/h. On the movable test track, maximum speed is 80 km/h. The speeds on each test track can be regulated independently of one another. - Point of impact precision in a test in which two moving cars hit at 50 km/h is 2.5 centimetres, corresponding to two thousandths of a second. By comparison, the blink of a human eye takes about 60 thousandths of a second. - On the fixed track it is also possible to crash-test trucks at speeds of up to 80 km/h. - Crash tests on both test tracks can also be carried out in the opposite direction. At the other end of the fixed test track there is a 15x70 metre concrete slab that is used for various tests such as rollovers. At the other end of the movable test track, the surrounding landscape is an integrated part of the crash-test laboratory. Here crash tests are carried out against a variety of objects found in the traffic environment. - At the point where the two test tracks meet, there is a 6 metre deep, Plexiglas-covered pit for filming crash tests from below. The cameras that film the tests from above are installed in a rig 11 metres above the point of impact. - All told there are about 50 high-speed cameras. The fastest can take 200 000 frames per second. The smallest cameras can be used to study the way in which small components inside the cars are affected by the collision forces. - The laboratory's crash block weighs 850 tonnes. It is moved with the help of air cushion technique. Different types of crash test barriers can be built on three sides of the block. - In addition, there are around 20 other barriers to support Volvos own extensive testing, based on knowledge from real life situations, as well as the various official test requirements. - Volvo Cars' also performs crash tests in a unique crash test simulator using a reinforced car body with the actual interior that is to be tested. The crash simulator can recreate the tipping, or pitch, in real-life collisions without destroying the car body. It can also simulate intrusion into the passenger compartment, using ten pistons representing different parts of the car. - A new car model that is being crash tested in the lab has already been tested thousands of times in Volvo's computers. In the computer a crash test can efficiently be simulated a number of times with different parameters without destroying a car. - Volvo Cars also has some 100 crash-test dummies of different types to represent men, women and children of different sizes, weights and ages. There are different dummies used for different situations and different purpose e.g. frontal crash test dummies, side impact dummies and rear end dummies.

Car design can powerfully affect our most basic human emotions. Volvo Cars presented the results of the world's first experiment in this area and reveal the emotive power of car design. The first scientific experiment of its kind has revealed that a beautiful car design can tangibly evoke a powerful range of feelings that are on par with the most basic of human emotions. The scientific experiment, conducted by Volvo Car Group (Volvo Cars) in collaboration with EEG specialists Myndplay, tested respondents to analyze how the brain reacts emotionally to car design and how design aesthetics actually make us feel. EEG is the recording of electrical activity along the scalp and measures voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain. The experiment proved that humans react emotionally to the shape of a car, with men in particular seeming almost genetically programmed to like sleek design with beautiful lines. This survey finally proves what we've always suspected. Beautiful car design can elicit strong emotional responses ranging from a positive frame of mind to a sense of empowerment. • 74% of men claimed that good design made them feel positive • Only 33% of women rated images of car design higher than an image of an attractive man • 60% of men claimed that driving a beautiful car makes them feel confident and empowered A parallel survey conducted by OnePoll revealed that 43% of men said that they found the car shape and design to be the most appealing aspect, over the interior, gadgets, wheels and engine. The front of the car was the most attractive feature for men, in contrast to the reaction from women where the rear of the car scored the most highly. The results of the experiment are not groundbreaking but it puts a scientific spin on what most car lovers already know in that place where all our emotions hang out -- the heart and soul! Carmakers know this too. They have museums displaying their cars, each one polished and presented like a piece of fine art. At the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, over 160 cars from the brand's 127-year history are displayed in 178,000 square feet of exhibition space over nine floors. The study may help explain a common car-buying phenomena; a car buyer is faced with two choices, Car A and Car B, where Car A is the sensible choice scoring top marks for price, reliability and fuel economy; but the buyer can't walk away from Car B because it just looks so good. You might call this situation letting the heart rule the head. But really it's just an example of the emotive power of good car design. For more information, go to our website.
