This morning/afternoon.

Mansion House, Dublin 2.

David Thomas, Managing Director of Volvo Car Ireland, presents cycle lane-hogging Lord Mayor of Dublin Nial Ring with the keys to a hybrid-powered Volvo S90 T8 for use as his official car for 2019.

Volvo has seen a significant increase in the demand for their T8 hybrid with orders accounting for 20% of sales on available models.

This morning

Mansion House, Dublin 2

David Thomas, MD of Volvo Car Ireland presents Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál MacDonncha, with the first car registered in the capital in 2018.

Tradition dictates that the first citizen of Dublin has the first car registered in Dublin each year for use as transport for official engagements.

Mr MacDonncha chose the Volvo S90 for his 181 D 1 registration.

Call, in fairness.

Volvo’s Lounge Console Concept, unveiled at the Shanghai Motor Show this week.

A super luxurious version of the new XC90 (which started life as a well-heeled family seven seater) with the third row of seats and the passenger seat removed to make way for a luxurious ladyconsole for the rear seat passenger.

More leg room, a 17-inch monitor, tray table, vanity mirror, lock box, shoe drawer and storage tray for ‘jewelry and makeup’.

Impressed by Swedish art director Christoffer Castor’s hilariously over the top ad for his 21 year old Volvo last month, the car company commissioned him to work his magic on the new V60.

Bask in the glory of all that is upon your face.

WITHOUT hands.

The Road Train.

We suspect this may be a wind-up:

The SARTRE project (Safe Road Trains for the Environment) has successfully completed the first test demonstrations of a multiple vehicle platoon. The test fleet included a lead truck followed by three cars driven entirely autonomously at speeds of up to 90 km/h – with no more than a 6 metre gap between the vehicles.

 

Hmm.
