Volvocar is carrying out an innovative approach in car building which will see the body of the new cars build slimmed so that it will reduce weigh and thus fuel consumption.


An investment of several hundred of million in Volvo's body plant in Olofstr�m is being envisaged geared largely towards fuel consumption. With the new technique, the bodies of the car will be one-third as thick as they are today, which will means total reduction in body weight.

The new technology being introduced will means that some specific or all the workers of the division will be trained such that the factory will have two new production lines. Today, about 2100 people are employed at the factory, so far, there don’t seem to be more will be employed according to reports.
