Let's not pretend the Jag will come loaded either. Not saying the Volvo's price isn't high, though....it is.

PoleCat teaser... ((I only use 'STAR' for one Brand and it ain't Volvo))

Here’s What Those Polestar Teasers Make When Stitched Together
Sure looks a lot like the Volvo Concept Coupe to us

- Collin Woodard - October 16, 2017

Earlier this summer, Volvo announced plans to turn Polestar into an electric performance brand. The first Polestar-branded car is set to debut October 17, but leading up to the big reveal, Polestar has been teasing it out one piece at a time. With all 70 teaser images finally released, we fired up ye olde Photoshop machine to see what they would make. The result is the image you see above...

Has Polestar always had that logo? I don't recall seeing it before. Looks like someone re-arranged a Citroen logo.

2017 MKX 2.7T Black Label

Is Volvo trying to do a New Mustang Hybrid before Ford does?

Re: Volvo 40-series conceptS >testcars> OfficialRelease

somewhere I'm (so) sure we have a mention of Volvo jumping on the subscription bandwagon
but not finding it...


Volvo press release - quickie-swiped from Cheers&Gears
Care by Volvo:
Click, Subscribe and Drive the new XC40 starting at an all-inclusive $600 per month

ROCKLEIGH, N.J. (November 29, 2017) Volvo Cars has introduced Care by Volvo, a new subscription service that will make having a car as easy as having a cell phone.

Care by Volvo customers simply choose a car online and make all-inclusive, monthly payments that cover insurance, service, and maintenance. The 2019 XC40 will be the first car available via Care by Volvo. All-inclusive pricing of limited, well-equipped models start at $600 per month before local taxes and registration fees.

“Care by Volvo takes the guesswork out of car ownership, covering insurance, service, maintenance and basically everything except gas,” said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO of Volvo Car USA.

The negotiation-free process starts with an online order. Care by Volvo customers will be able to drive away from their local retailer in a new Volvo without having to worry about the traditional extras such as down payments, maintenance and insurance.

Two XC40 models will be available via Care by Volvo at launch:

XC40 T5 AWD Momentum with Premium Package, Vision Package, Heated Front Seats and Heated Steering Wheel, Panoramic Roof and 19-inch Black Diamond Cut Wheels
XC40 T5 AWD R-Design with Premium Package, Vision Package, Advanced Package, Heated Front Seats and Heated Steering Wheel, Panoramic Roof, Harman Kardon Premium Sound and 20-inch, 5-Double Spoke Matte Diamond Cut Wheels
Care by Volvo will introduce 24/7 customer care and concierge services, including roadside assistance. The Care by Volvo subscription term is for 24 months. There will be an option to change cars and sign up for a new 24-month subscription as early as 12 months into the agreement.

An annual 15,000-mile allowance accompanies tire and wheel damage protection, wear-and-tear replacements including wipers and brakes, and all factory-scheduled maintenance.

Care by Volvo customers will be covered under a premium personal insurance policy issued by Liberty Mutual Insurance. The cost of insurance is part of the subscription price and provides customers $250,000 bodily injury protection per person and $500,000 bodily injury coverage per accident with a $500 deductible applied to both comprehensive and collision coverage.

Customers may begin subscribing to the new XC40 via Care by Volvo online at www.volvocars.com/us with vehicle deliveries starting in early spring 2018.
