Buyers of the Volvo V90 Cross Country Ocean Race Edition will contribute directly to helping understand the health of our oceans. To support the Volvo Ocean Race’s Science Programme around ocean plastics, the company will donate EUR 100 for each of the first 3,000 V90 Cross Country Volvo Ocean Race cars it plans to build. The resulting total donation of EUR 300,000 underlines Volvo Cars’ long-standing commitment to environmental care. But it also goes a step further – helping to tackle marine pollution by using floor mats made from materials including recycled fishing nets reclaimed from the seabed.
“The V90 Cross Country Volvo Ocean Race is a balanced and capable all-road car, at home on normal roads and off the beaten track,” said Dan Olsson, Vice President Special Vehicles and Accessories at Volvo Cars. “On top of that, it includes a range of specially developed standard features such as an integrated, detachable torchlight, additional power outlets and smart dirt- and water-resistant materials.”
An initial production volume of 3,000 cars will be sold in 30 markets around the globe, including the UK. Full UK details, include prices, are yet to be announced.
