Volvo Car Press Kits


Volvo Model Year 1991 Press Kit cover Volvo Model Year 1993 Press Kit cover

Volvo car press kits started out as single sheets of paper and may have been accompanied by one or two black and white photographs. They later developed into colourful folders with a lot of general and technical information in them. Many of them are here to download as PDF documents. The last two are E-Kits issued by Volvo North America and were issued on a CD after car shows.
