Spring has sprung. But with the warmer weather and blooming buds come sneezing, runny noses, and itchy, watery eyes – ALLERGIES!
Volvo has a fix!
The Swedish automaker has announced that most of its cars now will have micro-filtration systems designed to capture particles that cause seasonal allergies. The ventilation systems are currently in the S80, XC60, V70, XC70, and S60 models, typically as part of the (optional) Climate Package. Volvo Cars eventually plans to feature these systems in all their vehicles. This is a part of the automaker's “DRIVe Towards Zero”: a vision for developing cars entirely free from environment-impacting harmful particles and carbon dioxide emissions.

How it works
The ventilation system is automatic and airs out the car when the driver unlocks it. Pretty clever, huh?
What’s more, Volvo models equipped with these filtration systems also are built with hypo-allergenic materials within the interior, including chromium-free leather. These cars provide such high cabin air quality that they are recommended by the Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association and by Healthy Car, an independent research organization in the U.S.
