The Volvo 1800ES: The Most Beloved Classic Family Car

The Volvo 1800es 1

The Swedes have for quite some time been trailblazers in the fields of modern design, and their capacity to twirl up sober-mindedness and excellence into something as basic as a racking unit apparently achieves its apex in the state of a Volvo.

In the pre-winter of 1971, another adaptation of Volvo’s celebrated 1800 model was exhibited. The new form was known as the 1800ES. Under the surface, the innovation in the 1800ES was the same as that of the other 1800 models.

It Might Look the Same but NO…

The 1800ES had a recently outlined backside contrasted and the past forms of the 1800. The roofline had been expanded and the auto had a profile that was more reminiscent of a bequest. The 1800ES had expanded gear ability to give additional space for everything you might need.

Thinking back on the glass-upheld 1800ES—a separate auto looking back—the two-entryway brake was unmistakably a gambit of sorts for Volvo’s generally staid and unsurprising string of creation, and it offered a way to give Volvo the most loved useful shape in brandishing the soul of the car.


But, It’s Too Pricey…

The new version was produced for two model years, 1972 and 1973. In 1972, both versions were produced simultaneously, but only the 1800ES was produced in 1973.

At the point when the last production was worked in 1973 and company was twisted up, this was because of the undeniably thorough security prerequisites in the USA, specifically, which would just have been excessively costly, making it impossible to conform to.
