Volvo Dog Collection Released
Volvo’s models V50, XC60, V70, XC70 and XC90 have separate spaces for the dog and the luggage and are easy for the animals, no matter their size, to jump into.
"Ahead of the launch of the Volvo V70 and XC70 we wanted to create merchandise that was in sync with the cars and their target group. We know that the target group has an active family lifestyle. It thus felt perfectly natural to design a dog collection in a suitably playful tone. Dog accessories are an entirely new area in the automotive world, which is why we received such a positive response," says Yvonne Hall Tobiasson, head of merchandise at Volvo Cars.
As for the accessories, Volvo has began with building a protective grille between the passenger area and luggage compartment that prevents the dog from being thrown forward during heavy breaking or in a collision.
There is also a longitudinal cargo space divider provided, splitting the luggage compartment into left and right sections, one for the dog and the other for the luggage.
Volvo has also released a luggage compartment mat made of durable and dirt-resistant vinyl. The mat covers the floor, side panels and rear seat backrests, thus protecting the car's interior even when your pet is wet or dirty.
An easy to wipe clean cargo box made of injection-moulded plastic is also destined to protect the car’s interior from dirty paws. This one is available for all models, except for the XC90.
And last, sun-blinds for the luggage compartment to cover the tailgate window and rear side windows. The blinds provide maximum protection and shield the family pet from heat and irritating sunlight.
