It’s Blair, your roving Volvo reporter, and I’m going to be going behind the scenes for you at the North American International Auto Show 2011, in Detroit. We’re only three days away from one of the highlights of the automotive calendar and this year I wanted to make sure that you get all the videos, photos and interviews you’d like to see from the Volvo team. So, if you have any questions you’d like answered about the C30 Electric or any other of the great cars on display just let me know. I’m going to keep you updated with 5 – 10 posts a day over the first two days of the show, revealing what goes on in preparation for a motor show, and bringing you some great new clips of safety testing the C30 Electric, but if you want more just let me know!
I look forward to hearing from you.

We’ve arrived in Detroit for the North American International Auto Show and preparations are well underway for the opening Press Day tomorrow. I’m going to have the exclusive opportunity to interview Volvo CEO, Stefan Jacoby, about Volvo’s sustainability and electrification strategy, so really looking forward to that!
Now it wouldn’t be an interview without some input from you. So, if you’d like to send me any questions I’ll pick out the most popular and put them to him tomorrow.
Less than 18 hours to go now to the show and I’m just on my way down now to check out the final preparations. We might even put together a behind the scenes edit over the next couple of hours... watch this space!

Check out this interview with Keith Wetherall, Volvo Motor Show Project Manager, North America, and Sam Locricchio, Spokesman for North American International Motor Show. I asked them just how the Detroit Auto show is brought to life for the thousands of industry experts, press and consumers who will flock to the COBO exhibition centre over the next few days.
Tomorrow’s opening press day is set to welcome hoards of media. I look forward to keeping you abreast of the days action and bringing you more behind the scenes interviews, images and news.

It’s an early start for the Volvo crew here in Detroit for day one of the North American International Auto Show. The stand is ready and the C30 Electric takes centre stage amidst gleaming C70’s, XC 60’s, and S60’s. It promises to be a fun packed day with a mixture of media interviews and stand tours with everyone really excited to see what the show brings.
There’s a great buzz and I’ll keep my eyes peeled for you.

At tomorrow's press conference Volvo President and CEO, Stefan Jacoby, is going to reveal the pioneering crash test vehicle from the C30 Electric range, but for now it’s hidden under a silk sheet. Here’s some sneaked shots of the car so you can see just how well this electric vehicle performed in a simulated high-speed collision. The C30 Electric aims to be just as safe as other standard Volvo vehicles and although the damage looks impressive, the C30 Electric is designed to keep passengers safe and protected in the event of all types of collision.
I’ll have more details and video of the crash tests on this vehicle for you soon, so watch this space.
If you have any questions about crash testing electric vehicles let me know and I’ll put the most popular to a Volvo crash expert.

I thought you might like to see a little of the action for yourselves, so I have been taking shots of interviewers and crews visiting the stand.
And when these crews visit the stand this is what they produce:
We’re looking forward to a great press conference tomorrow.

Moments ago Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO, Volvo Cars and Jan Ivarsson, Senior Manager, Safety Strategy, Volvo Cars took to the stage to address the world's media here at the Detroit Auto Show 2011. During the event they revealed for the first time to the public the crash tested C30 Electric and plans for the test fleet roll-out over the next year.
2010 has been a great year for Volvo and 2011 promises to be even better. Crash tests on the C30 Electric have proved the car’s safety credentials, and the XC 60 has just become the only SUV cross-over to be awarded an overall 5* NCAP rating.
I thought you might like to see a few shots of the media madness surrounding the press conference.
Don’t forget we are going to be announcing the winner of the photo identification competition to win some cool Volvo memorabilia from Detroit shortly, so get your guesses in now by responding to the competition post.
