Our Volvo Brand Ambassador, National Hunt Jockey Barry Geraghty came to pick up his brand new Volvo XC90 B5 Mild Hybrid today. As he picked up his new vehicle Barry said:

“I loved the 2017 XC90 that I have driven for the last 2 years. However, the new B5 Mild Hybrid AWD really takes the car to the next level. I am so impressed with the power and comfort of this XC90. The new additional features like 360o Camera, Pilot assist and the very cool Volvo On Call App are really impressive”

This year marks the fourth year of the car partnership between Finlay Volvo Cars and The Curragh Racecourse.

We joined up to be official car partners with The Curragh Racecourse back in 2015.

This year more than ever is a very exciting year to be involved with the Curragh Racecourse, as it is the opening of their brand new €81 million redevelopment, which only reopened in May.

We believe this partnership is one that works well for us, and one we are very proud of. Both organisations have a long-standing history in the county of Kildare & being able to associate our Volvo brand with such a great organisation is an honour to Finlay’s.

Although all race meetings throughout the year are very exciting for us, Derby weekend is the one that we look forward to every year.

The difference with Derby weekend and other meetings throughout the year is that we sponsor a race. [...]

Volvo Cars is for the first time making its safety knowledge easily accessible in a central digital library which it urges the car industry to use, in the interest of safer roads for all.

The announcement symbolises the company’s philosophy of boosting safety through sharing knowledge that helps saving lives and comes on the sixty-year anniversary of what may have been the most important invention in the history of automotive safety, the three-point safety belt.

Introduced by Volvo Cars in 1959, the three-point safety belt is estimated to have saved over one million lives globally, not just in Volvos but in numerous other cars, thanks to its decision to share the invention in the interest of improving traffic safety. Since then it has continued to prioritise societal progress over financial gain alone.

To celebrate this milestone and to underline that its sharing tradition goes beyond patents and physical products, Volvo Cars now launches Project E.V.A. [...]
