Our history - 1984

1984

  • Volvo Buses introduced its C10M, a "rolling-road". This bus was the safest and most luxurious ever presented. Unfortunately, also the most expensive. Consequently, not more than one hundred CMT10s were manufactured.
  • Volvo won the prestigious 'Truck of the Year' title for the second time in 1984. This time for the Volvo F10 Intercooler.
  • Volvo Valmet in Finland introduced a more powerful tractor in the 'Nordic tractor' range, the 905.
  • In 1984, Volvo's employees were offered a productivity bonus system, the PBS.
  • Volvo this year presented a new technical feature, which many people thought was a joke: a water injection.
