volvo conductionsticker
It was only a month ago when the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) began implementing a new number coding scheme for brand new vehicles. Memorandum Circular No. 06 entitled “Guidelines in the implementation of the UVVRP for new vehicles without license plates but with conduction stickers” required new car owners, specifically those who have yet to be issued plates by the LTO, to prominent display the conduction sticker number “on spaces allotted for regular license plates in front and at the rear of the vehicle.”
 
The problem was, the MMDA simply wanted car owners to copy the conduction sticker number on a piece of card board and place it on the plate number holder. So unless you've got serious art skills, chances are, your home made temporary plate will look like a preschooler's art project and so will your brand new ride.
 
Luckily, new Volvo owners won't have to go through this trouble. That's because Volvo Philippines is providing them with specially-made conduction plates until the LTO issues them license plates.

Aside from genuine parts, certified procedures, and internationally-trained technicians, to Volvo Philippines, there's got to be more to it than just your regular car service. In saying this, they're taking things to a new level by upgrading to Volvo Service 2.0 - a totally new concept that puts emphasis on customer service rather than just car service. 
 
Service 2.0 is the collective term for all of Volvo's new customer service offerings and approach, which are all based on consumer needs. This is not merely a one-shot promotional campaign offered for a limited period. Instead, it's a continuous commitment to all Volvo owners of an enjoyable and hassle-free ownership experience.

Since 1996, Polestar has been Volvo's motorsports partner and performance tuning arm. Think of them as what AMG is to Mercedes-Benz. And at last, Volvo Philippines is ready to get racy as they now offer performance tuning packages from Polestar
 
The performance package currently being offered is an ECU reflash, or what they call as a “software upgrade,” to increase engine output. This can be done by any authorized Volvo dealer in the Philippines, which means that the Volvo factory warranty will not be voided. Likewise, the vehicle's original service schedule remains unchanged because the Polestar performance package has been tested and verified not to stress any component beyond its performance limits.

In support of the Philippine Road Safety Action Plan 2011 - 2020 (PRSAP) and the UN's Decade of Action for Road Safety, Volvo Philippines conducted a Pedestrian Detection Crash Simulation during the Department of Transportation and Communication's (DOTC) Road Safety Forum held last February 22, 2012 at Camp Crame, Quezon City. 
 
For the demonstration, the all-new S60 T6 equipped with Volvo's City Safety system was driven straight into an inflatable pedestrian dummy, where it automatically braked to a full stop and avoided a collision. The test successfully proved that Volvo's latest preventive safety technology can actually save lives on the road.
