Winter Tyre Programme
Volvo's Winter Tyre Programme goes from strength to strength with sales now exceeding over 1000 tyres since its launch in October 2010.
Winter tyres are designed to perform in cold weather, particularly temperatures below 7oC when standard tyres start to reduce in performance and prolong braking distances.
Lee Berrell, Aftersales Manager for Volvo Car UK, said: "Interest in the Volvo winter tyres has far exceeded our expectations, with Scotland, the North of England and London seeing the greatest number of inquires and sales. While some are struggling with supply, we pre-ordered a large number of tyres to ensure all Volvo customers can be catered for, even into the New Year."
Volvo offers alloy wheel and tyres packages with either Pirelli or Continental tyres, priced from £949+VAT and £999+VAT respectively. Customers can also choose to store their summer wheels and tyres at home during winter or with Volvo for a small additional cost at Volvo's Tyre Hotel.
Free Safety Inspection
Having cars which are able to tackle the harsh weather and offering a winter tyre programme, Volvo are also helping customers ensure that they are fully prepared for the cold climate and ready to deal with the elements.
Volvo have introduced a free-of-charge Mid Service Safety Inspection. The inspection entails a 25 point check, ranging from fluid checks to security checks on major and integral parts of the vehicle to give piece of mind to any Volvo driver.Published 9 December 2010
