Volvo V70 UK Police Car

The 2007 Volvo V70 UK Police car opens a new chapter in the history of police cars, being scheduled to make its public debut at the National Association of Police Fleet Managers (NAPFM) conference and exhibition at Wroughton on 14 and 15 August. Lennart Stegland, President of Volvo Special Vehicles, will be the person who will unveil the all-new V70 police car, while the guests of the event will enjoy the pleasure of admiring the car fully prepared for police use ahead of its official production in November 2007. Its improved chassis provides incredible driving characteristics and its reputation for reliability and strength has been popular for more than 40 years. According to Sarah Tottle, Special Vehicles Manager, Volvo Car UK, the Volvo V70 has always been on the top list of demands by police forces across the UK, especially among road policing units and the new model was designed to accentuate its popularity as an efficient police vehicle. Its striking payload of 724 kg in the D5 diesel model smartly combines with an underfloor lockable storage area as well as a larger load space in the rear, thus ensuring the safe transportation of the equipment used by modern policing. The cabin was designed in such a way that the driver and passengers could have more leg and shoulder room, bringing a competitive level of comfort for those road policing officers who have to stay on the driving seat for hours. The V70 "Turnkey", which represents a car built and equipped in the Volvo factory to Swedish police specification, will also be presented by Volvo Car Company.
