With the good environmental performance, the can count on various financial in 13 European markets, including the UK, CO2-based vehicle taxation have been implemented; for a lower road tax, tax or other similar forms of encouragement.

Rising fuel also make the Volvo DRIVe offer very as fuel consumption can reach at motorway speeds.
