Passenger Seatless Volvo XC90 Edition

Volvo is taking luxury to a whole new level by introducing the XC90 "Excellence" concept in the Chinese market.  This special XC90 no longer has a 3rd row...or a passenger seat!  That's right, this vehicle is designed for a 'chauffeur-style' type of driving, which is the most common in China.

Volvo's 'Lounge Console' is in place of a passenger seat, which allows the second row passenger to feel as if they are in first-class.  The Lounge Console combines an ottoman, television, work station, and storage all in one!  Hard to imagine, huh?  Watch the video below to see the XC90 Excellence for yourself!

Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival

Lehman Volvo participated in this year's Mechanicsburg Earth Day Festival, a free public event promoting the importance of a sustainable Earth.  The festival was held in downtown Mechanicsburg on Saturday, April 18th from 9am-3pm.  The sunny beautiful day attracted hundreds of people to come together and love our Earth!  The day was filled with lots of music, food, and family fun!

Mechanicsburg has always been known as the little green town, complete with an active Environmental Advisory Council and a Recycling Committee.  This annual event is hosted by Downtown Mechanicsburg Partnership.

Lehman Volvo thanks everyone who came out to support Earth Day!  Volvo continuously improves the Earth through their products, processes, and people.  Here at Lehman Volvo, we are proud to be a part of an organization that not just values, but is also a leader in environmental care.

Lehman Volvo featured the 2015.5 Volvo V60 Drive-E at this year's Earth Day Festival.  Volvo's Drive-E Powertrain combines the low-fuel consumption and emissions of a four-cylinder engine with the performance of a six or eight-cylinder.  The result is a smooth, powerful ride-with fewer stops at the pump!
