slow-volvo-takes-the-eco-leadVOLVO has been hailed as the most improved car brand for reducing CO2 emissions a new report has revealed.

The study, complied by automotive industry data provider JATO, put Volvo at the top of the twenty strong list of manufacturers due to the Swedish firm’s models producing average CO2 emissions of 157.5g/km.

Volvo says the news has given credence to their ‘DRIVe Towards Zero’ mission – a goal of making the most efficient and environmentally-friendly cars – with the Volvo range including nine DRIVe models.

The firm’s DRIVe models no doubt helped the 157.5g/km average calculated by JATO – the Volvo C30, S40 and V50 all produce 99g/km, while the S60, V60, V70 and S80 DRIVe models all produce under 120g/km.
