The Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association is thrilled with Volvo's new Clean Zone interior package, available as an option on the new S80. So thrilled, in fact, that they've bestowed upon it a "recommendation," making it the first car to meet their hyper-hypo-allergenic standards. How'd Ford's Swedish unit do it? By using rubber in place of textile carpets, by tanning leather with vegetable oils instead of chromium. By adding a computerized air filter. By basically being more goddamn Swedish than Bj rn, Benny, Agnetha and Anni-Frid. [Thanks to AJ for the tip.]
