2013 Volvo V60 Plug in Hybrid Production - B-Roll
Audio file (Martin Luther King) provided by http://www.audiomicro.com
Volvo Car Corporation ramps up assembly of the world's first diesel plug-in
Volvo Car Corporation is now ramping up production of the new Volvo V60
Plug-in Hybrid. After the initial batch of 1,000 model year 2013 cars,
production will increase to 4,000-6,000 cars as of model year 2014.
The assembly of the world's first diesel plug-in hybrid has been
successfully integrated on the same line as the company's other models at
the Torslanda plant in Gothenburg.
This is a remarkable achievement considering that the sophisticated plug-in
hybrid technology includes two complete drive trains and a powerful battery
that provides a range of up to 50 kilometres on pure electric power.
"We are first in the industry to integrate a plug-in hybrid in an
established production flow together with other car models," says Peter
Mertens, Senior Vice President Research and Development at Volvo Car
Corporation. "The integration in the standard production flow gives the
plug-in hybrid buyer the possibility to choose in principle all options
available for the standard V60."
Over 300 more parts
All the additional equipment and additional systems in the plug-in hybrid
have led to parts of the final assembly line being rebuilt and modified.
The adaption makes it possible to smoothly integrate the assembly of over
300 more parts that are included in the plug-in hybrid compared to an
A couple of examples of the integrated production flow:
.The electric motor along with its drive shafts is fitted on the same
station as the final drive on the standard four-wheel drive models.
.The cooling system and the high voltage cables are assembled on the
Pallet, which is used to assemble the car's drive train and chassis parts.
.The battery pack is lifted in through the car's tailgate short side
forward. It is then spun a quarter of a turn in the passenger compartment -
a manoeuvre that takes 60 seconds and carried out with less than 20
millimetres to spare.
"The 11.2 kWh lithium-type battery is the single most complex system in the
car. The precision manoeuvre to get it in place is an excellent example of
the state-of-the-art assembly process," says Peter Mertens.
The Volvo V60 Plug-in Hybrid is the synthesis of close cooperation between
Volvo Car Corporation and Swedish electricity supplier Vattenfall. The two
companies have financed the development project jointly.
"The V60 Plug-in Hybrid is a unique car, a historic step, not only for
Volvo Car Corporation but for the entire car industry. The first year's
1,000-car batch was sold out even before the car reached the showrooms and
the order books for next year's cars are already filling up," concludes

2011 Volvo S60 City Driving
http://www.eurocarnews.com - In the U.S., it is planned that the all-new
S60 will be offered with the sporty "Dynamic" chassis as standard, while
other markets will be offered with a "Comfort" chassis as standard and the
"Dynamic" chassis as an option.
The difference in ride and handling between the two chassis alternatives
can be found in the dampers and the front and rear subframes. The Comfort
variant has a somewhat softer setting to give a smoother ride on poorer
During the development process, the chassis team carved out a holistic
solution featuring changes and refinements for virtually every single
detail that influences a car's driving properties. This includes improved
steering, stiffer springs and bushings as well as more damping than in any
The software in the All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system, which is standard on the
S60 T6, has been modified to exploit the sporty new chassis to the limit.
The all-new S60 can be specified with the advanced, self-adjusting FOUR-C
active chassis. The FOUR-C active chassis has been modified and refined for
better control and more comfortable feel compared to previous Volvos.

2013 Volvo Car Group starts production of the new engine family VEA
Volvo Car Group starts production of a new engine family
Volvo Car Group is now starting production of the first engine variants in
the new, high-efficiency four-cylinder engine family. The development and
production take place in-house at Volvo Car Group and form a vital part of
the company's strategy for independence.
The strategy of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines and driveline
electrification is the path that Volvo Cars has chosen for the future. With
total control over the development and production of engines and drivelines
and by reducing the number of engine variants, the result is increased
flexibility and greater ability to influence quality.
"This marks a milestone in Volvo Cars' history. With our new engine family
we are focusing on two additional vital properties - driving pleasure and
fuel efficiency," says Derek Crabb, Vice President Powertrain Engineering.
Modern production plant with efficient assembly
In Volvo Car Group's engine plant in Skövde, preparations for the
production start of the new Volvo Engine Architecture (VEA) engines have
been under way for about two years. One of the highlights is a brand-new,
state-of-the-art addition to the plant for assembly of the new engines. All
the engine versions are built on the same line, which runs through the new
part of the plant and makes for very efficient production.
"One of the biggest challenges was the remodelling of the line for cylinder
block processing. 30 machining cells were replaced or converted at a cost
of about half a billion kronor," says Oskar Falk, Vice President Global
Billions invested in a competitive engine family
Development and investment in the new engine family is part of a
comprehensive expansion plan at Volvo Cars. About two billion kronor was
invested in the Skövde plant. This secures operations there and a large
number of jobs for a long time to come. The investment is the most
important in the engine plant's history.
Developed at Volvo Cars
The new VEA engines were developed by a Swedish team of engineers. The new,
smaller engines are optimised and deliver higher performance than today's
six-cylinder units, while offering lower fuel consumption than the current
generation of four-cylinder units.
"During the development of VEA the starting point was our customers and
what we wanted to offer them in regard to good fuel economy, low
environmental impact and immense driving pleasure at an attractive price.
At the same time, however, it's also about the fact that Volvo Cars gets a
sound basis for developing future-generation technologies featuring fuel
economy of absolute world class," says Derek Crabb.
Launched this autumn
VEA consists of four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Together with
driveline electrification, VEA replaces the previous eight engine
architectures on three different platforms. The new engines will be
introduced between 2013 and 2015. Almost 20,000 engines will be produced in
2013, and by the end of the year the production pace will be 2000 units a
week. The first variants will be fitted to the Volvo S60, V60, XC60, V70,
XC70 and S80 in autumn 2013.
