volvo XC60"Hey...Who Is The Surgeon Here!!!!!"
Volvo XC60


The side dissection of Volvo XC60 SUV...The car features advanced side collision protection and other safety features...The technologies are shared with Land Rover in this project..
ie the off road capabilities are done by Land Rover....Both gasoline and diesel engines are available....


volvo S40.jpg"The Predecessor of S80...The Volvo S40"


This one has three generations from 1995, 2004 and 2008..The 2008 one is here before you..The 2004 version was awarded as the best luxurious cars for the youngsters by Forbes.

This one is with slight addons and a sporty face lift on the 2004 version..Just has improved headlamps, interiors, audio system, emergency braking assists etc..


volvo FH16 trailor.jpg"Have you seen one like this....The FH16 trailer!!!"


The FH series is volvos mos successful heavy truck series..This FH16 is the latest offering with computer controlled manual gear shift..

The thing i noticed was there was only 2pedals, one for acceleration and another brake...Hmmm the clutch is missing, Of course it is not a mistake by Volvo, automatic gearshift no..

It will be difficult for the Volvo to have a test run of this one in our roads...Cant you see the ground clearance is too low..For our challenging roads in India Volvo has to do some researches..


volvo XC60"Volvo XC60..The monster in Safety And Power"


Are you wondering why i said it a monster in safety...Let me tell you something..Do you see the blue light glowing in front..Its nothing but a Rear End Collision detection sensor..The system is named as City Safety..

Ie around the speeds of 30kmps the vehicles sensor monitors chances for rear end collisions.If the collision seems to occur the car is braked automatically.. The goodis are not over..the car also features side impact protection,roll stability and traction control, patented side protective designs, hill descent control etc....


volvo+pavilion+at+volvo+ocean+race.jpg"Let Me Describe!!!.."

The lad explaining some interesting safety features integrated in their vehicles. The thing he said seemed interesting..He started by saying that more than 50% of road accident are due to a drunken driver.. And you wanna hear Volvo's solution for it!!!Hmmm the vehicle won't start if you are drunk..

How wana know? Their is a sensor hidden in the cabin near to driver which senses content of alcohol...And if the driver is drunk....vehicle is immobilized.. Dude... the company cares for your life!!!!


My advice to Volvo is, don't try to sell it here in kerala, for our drivers wont like it!!!!

co2+test+demo.jpg"The Child's Play...A Demo Kit To Test CO2 emission"


The device provides us option to select roots and speeds for some trailers and says us the amount of co2 emitted during the trip and the fuel efficiency...

The company is concerned to make the public aware of facts through these small demos..There was another thing like this which shows the resultant force generated when a car collides in various speeds..

For a sixty kg weighted man when collides at a speed of 70kmph, it showed his weight to be increased to above 5000 kgs, ie the resultant force of collision.


Joining you with more photos on volvo's hybrid engines, electric cars, engines and much more..

Meet here soon

The place which proclaims the artistic and sculptural skills of the pallava dynasty is sometimes termed as an open air museum. The greatness of the place were hidden to the outer world since the 18th century, for the pallavas were not interested in outletting their talents to the outer world.

After the Buddha dynasty the pallavas were the strongest in south India till the end of 9th century.

The place ha so many remainings of the ancient pallava culture. The place was also known as mamallapuram which was named after the old pallava king Narasimhavarman who was also called mamalla (good wrestler). Its is belived that the city was founded by mamalla in the late 7th century.

Mahabalipuram was pallava's religious centre . The period of pallava dynasty was from 4th to 9th century.

About this rock sculpture so many intusions are there. The content of this sculpture is  surely from the Hindu Mythologies, and is most commonly referred as Arjuna's penance.But different opinions are still there.


Look at the carvings done beautifully on the huge rock. A symbol enough to show the artistic and sculptural skill of the old dynasty. Can you imagine people who makes carvings on these huge rocks without any modern technologies to cut or shape the rocks. They emerged successful in encarving their religious believes and moments from the Hindu holy books there in the stones, which looks like a huge canvas to us.
