Volvo announces 'M' mobility service

Volvo has announced a push into the world of mobility services, with the launch of its new 'M' brand. At the moment, the company is just researching potential users' needs and habits, in an attempt to better understand what's required of an on-demand, app-based mobility offering. It'll properly launch in spring 2019 (our autumn) in the USA and Sweden, at which point Volvo wants it to provide "dependable, on-demand access to cars and services through an intuitive app" to users.

VFACTS: June 2018 new vehicle sales

Australia’s new vehicle sales in June this year couldn’t quite match the record tally over the same month in 2017, but 130,300 units over 26 selling days is nothing to sneeze at.

Contrasting bumpers and wheel arch cladding complement the skid-plate style rear treatment, and 'T-Cross' lettering adorns the lower portion of the tailgate. Naturally, the production car will be a watered-down version of this sketch.
