Volvo at the Eden Project
Volvo Car UK is the Official Automotive Partner of the Eden Project and our collaboration at COP26 aimed to inspire and educate people about our relationship with the environment, and how we can protect the planet to create a safer future #ForEveryonesSafety.
Whether in Glasgow or Cornwall, the Eden Project team are proud to drive a fleet of Volvo XC40 Recharge pure electric cars ensuring our team’s mobility remains entirely emission free. A blueprint of Volvo’s latest electric motor design can be seen here today.
Volvo’s investments in e-motor design and development represent yet another step towards Volvo Cars’ climate commitments and electrification strategy. It aims for 50 per cent of its sales to be fully electric vehicles by 2025, with the rest hybrids.
Electrification is just part of the company’s comprehensive climate plan which addresses carbon emissions across all its operations and products, towards its ambition to become climate-neutral by 2040.
Pure Electric Test Drive Hub
Following a hugely successful first year, we're excited to announce that Volvo’s Pure Electric Information Hub will is back at Eden. Visit the Hub, situated in the Banana Car Park to speak with friendly specialists and test drive Volvo’s pure electric fleet around the picturesque Cornish roads to experience the enjoyment of driving an electric car.
Both the Volvo XC40 Recharge pure electric and the new C40 Recharge pure electric – Volvo’s first model available only in fully electric and sold exclusively online – are available to test drive (T&Cs apply). Test drives are available to pre-book soon, and a number of walk-in slots will also be available, subject to availability.
