“A vehicle as unique as the new Nissan cube deserves an equally breakthrough launch,” said Christian Meunier, vice president, Nissan Marketing, NNA. “We envision owners using their cubes as one of their essential mobile devices, connecting with friends, sharing music and sharing fun.

Volvo C30, S40 and V50 now with R-Design

Responding to the substantial demand for cars that combine good environmental properties with exciting design features, Volvo Cars is now offering the C30, S40 and V50 DRIVe models with optional R-Design features.

This development has been made possible by the continued optimisation of the cars’ drivelines. The new C30, S40 and V50 1.6D DRIVe all beat the 120g CO2/km limit (119 g for all three models) – even without the previous exterior modifications designed to cut air drag, such as special body and underbody panels and spoilers.

“We’ve succeeded in reducing the fuel consumption and CO2 levels of these DRIVe models by more than we initially believed possible. This has created sufficient margin to equip the cars with the R-Design package and still beat the 120g/km emission limit in all models,” explains Magnus Jonsson, Senior Vice President, Product Development at Volvo Cars. read more »
