Our Fleet Test Drive: Volvo S80 - 3rd Report Update
25 June 2007
Some of our staff will be holding back the tears now the S80's on its way...
|25 JUNE 2007|
|Forecast CPM 39.7p|
|Actual CPM 44.0p|
|The chaps from Volvo have finally asked for their S80 back, and despite its flaws I’m going to miss it. Nothing this side of the luxury market matches its long-distance ability|
It's always nice to see a cost per mile figure drop, though this time it's not down to improving mpg (it's hovering around 38.6), but because Volvo's pitch to the residual value industry is working.
The Swedes have long been campaigning that the RVs on certain models in its range are a little low and Topcalc has responded by predicting our S80 will retain an extra £1300 over three years and 60,000 miles.
Otherwise, little to report. The big Volvo's proving to be ultra reliable and a great cruiser.
