New Volvo Wind Tunnel

Posted by AutomotiveTv on Sep. 27, 2008

Tell the world:

Volvo is the first car manufacturer to own a wind tunnel that fully simulates the airflow around a moving car. The 20 Million Euro wind tunnel can replicate the flow of air around and underneath the car when driving on a real road at speeds of up to 250km/h and will help Volvo Cars lower fuel consumption and reduce carbon dioxide emissions. With this new tool, Volvo has already reduced air resistance in the new Volvo C30 DRIVe by more than 10 percent. Available video includes edited packages with and without narration about Volvos wind tunnel.
