As we mentioned last week, we’re quickly moving into the buying season for the new 2015 model year. One of the popular auto manufacturers is Volvo, which was recently purchased by Geely. Many industry watchers have been curiously waiting to see what this new version of the Volvo brand would produce. With the introduction of the model we’re featuring today, many feel that this will completely redefine the Volvo brand.
Volvo has finally revealed the all-new 2015 XC90 luxury crossover SUV, perhaps their most important new product in decades. Notice the engine selections available with turbocharged, supercharged and hybrid models. Consider a couple of reaction comments from automotive enthusiasts made when first seeing this new reveal: “One of a kind vehicle. This new Volvo xc90 2015 is pushing all possible boundaries. BMW Mercedes and all other luxury levels watch out for New VOLVO products coming soon in the near future. This particular model is phenomenal, it’s stunning and the technology is mind blowing. Whoever purchases this vehicle is a winner in every way.”“It looks like a Q7 from the front, an X5 from the side and an X3 with Volvo lights from the back. If it’s a much more affordable competitor to the Q7, X5 & ML, it will probably sell well in the USA.”
Set to sell for less than half the price of the least expensive car in America, the 3-wheeled Elio is aiming to shake up the automotive industry. It isn’t electric but uses a small gasoline-powered system. However, due it’s small, light, and aerodynamic design, it’s economical prowess is vast. The Elio features a 1+1, 2-seat design. It utilizes a 70-hp, 1-liter, 3-cylinder front-mounted engine.
