VOLVO PHILIPPINES gave a toast to its Swedish roots as it joins the Swedish National Day celebration hosted by the Embassy of Sweden in Manila. Held at The Fifth at Rockwell, Volvo PH participates as part of #TeamSweden and continues its strong support for the core advocacies and programs of the Swedish Embassy. It also previewed the first Plug-in Hybrid in the Philippines — the sophisticated Volvo S90 T8 Twin Engine.
Aimed to further strengthen bilateral trade, encourage people-to-people exchange, and update Sweden’s image to the local community, the festivities brought together Swedish companies and other members of the community for a day of sumptuous food, lively activities, and carry-on conversations that spur positive change.
For instance, cooperation between the Swedish Embassy and local partners have produced campaigns such as #RespetoNaman — a campaign against gender-based violence, and Fashion Revolution: The Future of Textiles — a showcase that focuses on how the fashion industry can become more environment-friendly.
Volvo Philippines has been an active supporter of these activities not only as the official transport partner but also as an advocate for the values and principles these events espouses. As a global company, Volvo has always been centered on people and how its cars and operation can contribute to a better society.
At Volvo, people are fueled by Omtanke. More than just a Swedish word, it is a unique approach that helps Volvo think again about how a car should be created to make people’s lives easier and better. It guides Volvo on how to craft their interiors, develop their technology, and approach their design more broadly to make life more effortless.
This 2019, Volvo PH takes its environmental efforts a step further with the introduction of the Plug-in Hybrid variants for the stately S90 sedan, the luxurious XC90 SUV, and the dynamic XC60 mid-size SUV. These Volvo models are equipped with a powerful yet fuel-efficient T8 Twin Engine that allows the driver to switch from different modes: Pure, Hybrid, and Power.
Volvo PH looks forward to more collaborations with the Embassy of Sweden as well as other #TeamSweden mates towards a more vibrant and optimistic future.
