Check this out, pretty interesting. It looks like the new Volvo FAV will for sure be called the XC90. I wonder if Volvo will change the name of the V70 XC, to XC70. We all know what the V50 will be, but I wonder what the V55 will be. The V30 should be the hatchback (SCC), it looks like the C40 will be a coupe based off of the next 40/50/Focus/323 chassis. It looks like there will be a C60 based off of the 60 series as well. Interesting stuff... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P><B>Recent Vehicle Trademark Filings!</B><P><B>Volvo Personvagnar AB, (Volvo Car Corp.)</B><P><B>Date Filed/Country:</B><BR>2000-07-24/EU <BR>2001-01-19/US <BR>2001-01-22/CA <BR>2001-01-23/AU<P><B>Trademarks:</B><BR>XC10, XC20, XC30, XC40, XC50, XC60, XC70, XC80, XC90<P><B>Date Filed/Country:</B><BR>2001-09-05/US<P><B>New Trademarks:</B><BR>C40, C60, V30, V50, V55<P><B>Date Filed/Country:</B><BR>2001-05-22/AU<P><B>Older Trandemarks:</B><BR>S40, S60, S80, V40, V70, C70<P>-Drew<P>

That's a pretty good find. It looks like there's some redundancy there to keep people from getting too close to their brands.<P>BUT it also looks like they won't be using the H30 moniker that had been said.<P>Bad news for those pining for a big Volvo also. They didn't do anything larger than 80 except for the XC90.

Actually the "XC" will be an addition to the "C", "S" and "V" monikers that Volvo already uses. They will siginify "more aggressive" and "more rugged AWD" versions of V models.<P>Good work!<P>Yannis<P><P>
