Hi All,

I've been enjoying my V70R for about a year now, and I've only seen one or two other ones since buying mine...and I drive around the Los Angeles area a lot! Does anyone know how many V70Rs were made? How about per model year? Just curios how rare these things are.

Thanks,
Jay

Re: V70R production numbers by model year? Overall? (911toV70R)

I can't imagine a V70 R being too common in LA. Seems like the Pacific NW and NE have the most R owners.

I'm sure even places like Salt Lake City and Denver have more R owners than in Southern California.

I'm sure using the search feature would pull up a thread with production numbers by year. 6MT V70 R's are pretty rare and decrease with each year.

Actually.. if you look in the r sightings thread - there are many reported socal sightings.

I was in Manhattan Beach last week and spotted 3 VR's in one day!

Initial indications were approx 1200 VR's in 2004 and declining steadily until approx 300 VR's in 2007.

I have a VR in southern california!!! I see you are from Colton too, I work on some projects out there, not actually on site so I'm afraid you probably haven't seen my R...we had a get together almost a year ago that was really, really fun. We drove up to Big Bear and back, early morning charge so the roads were clear. I was the only VR, but it was still a great trip!!

2004= 1,565
2005= 674
2006= 823
2007= 345
...among many, many others. Do a Search for "production", and there are quite a few threads on this.

Re: (GreensOlicious)

I did a search for "V70R production" and not much of substance came up. I'm used to v.bulletin searches on Pelicanparts.com for my 911, so I haven't got the knack for using this one yet. So excuuuuse me for wasting your time!


Thanks for the info in any case. I think the R is an ideal vehicle for SoCal...most people I know venture up to Big Bear or Mammoth at least a few times a year...the AWD is great for that. Average speed on the freeways here is around 80, so the power is nice. Love the advanced suspension when driving Mulholland or another of CA's great driving roads. And God knows we need all the airbags and Volvo safety engineering to protect us from the suicidal drivers here.

In Montreal I've never seen an S60R. There's three P2 V70R's within a few blocks where I lived last year though.

Different demographics obviously! Unless I'd looked around on the web I would have never known Volvo did a sedan version of the V70R.

Can't hurt to try... I've emailed a contact at Volvo NA asking for production numbers, by color/trans/interior. Obviously, if I get a decent reply - I'll share here, in a few threads.

VCNA used to answer these questions in a past until everyone here emailed them same week and they thought its DoS attack and stopped to reply.

But you can always use a secret tool (G****e) and look into intelligence information collected in past..

Any info on MY 2005?
In one of the many threads about this years ago someone started a spreadsheet to capture all of the available information. I can't remember who it was or where the actual spreadsheet is located on the web, but I archived the info below:

http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?180955-How-many-R-s-exist-in-America/page2

Following are the production numbers (imported to the U.S.) for the V70R 2004 through 2007:

To narrow down further, I know about 300 2006 VRs were manual. Far fewer manual and atacama.

4 Manual
0 Auto

I received the following numbers from VCNA after wondering how many cars were made with my specifications. I'm almost sure that my R is unique in North America with Sonicama, M/T and Sport Package based on these figures
