Low running costs

Reducing Running Costs

Volvo Car’s relentless focus on developing innovative technology is producing cleaner, more fuel efficient cars whilst promoting great performance dynamics.

Since the early 1970s Volvo Car’s commitment to the environment covers the entire lifecycle of the car from design engineering and production to useful life, servicing, recycling and running costs.

This commitment to constant improvement and ground breaking technological innovation is now more important than ever to motorists as fuel costs soar and the government levies road tax based on CO2 emissions.

In the ‘RAC Report on Motoring 2013’, Professor Stephen Glaister director of the RAC foundation is quoted as saying “Motoring is the single biggest area of household expenditure bar none. Those on the lowest incomes are drowning under the weight of motoring costs. The government’s freeze on fuel duty, while welcome is like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic – ultimately futile. To make a real, meaningful difference, fuel duty needs to be cut significantly.”

Can we rely on the UK government to cut fuel duty? We believe that is unlikely but we can be sure of Volvo Car’s continued commitment to developing more fuel efficient cars.

The table below gives examples of some current Volvo models. For more information on the models of your choice pleases contact us.
