Volvo Cars, the premium car maker, today reveals a special version of its award-winning V90 Cross Country all-road estate to celebrate the start of the 2017/18 Volvo Ocean Race. Buyers of the car will also contribute directly to helping understand the health of our oceans. To support the Volvo Ocean Race's Science Programme around ocean plastics, the company will donate EUR 100 for each of the first 3,000 V90 Cross Country Volvo Ocean Race cars it plans to build. The resulting total donation of EUR 300,000 underlines Volvo Cars' long-standing commitment to environmental care. The Volvo Ocean Race Science Programme equips boats in this year's race with a variety of sensors that will capture data from some of the remotest parts of the world's oceans. This includes temperatures, barometric pressure, currents and wind speed, which will help contribute to more accurate weather forecasts and climate models used by scientists globally.
