MOTOR1.COM – Volvo V90 Cross Country Volvo Ocean Race Fights Marine Pollution
Abandoned fishing nets will be used to make the 100% nylon carpet inlays.
The Geely-owned premium automaker has found just the right way to celebrate the start of the 2017/18 Volvo Ocean Race by preparing an eco-friendly special edition of its V90 Cross Country rugged wagon. In a bid to fight marine pollution, the stylish hauler created by the firm’s Special Vehicles department comes with carpet inlays manufactured from ECONYL®, which is a fabric made by using 100% recycled nylon. Abandoned fishing nets extracted from the seabed will be repurposed in order to be used inside the luxurious cabin.
