Volvo Buses has been awarded the Red Dot Award for Product Design for its new 9900 long-distance coach. The new premium Volvo 9900 was launched in 2018.
The Red Dot Award: Product Design is one of the world’s largest design competitions. In 2019, designers and manufacturers from 55 countries entered more than 5,500 products in the competition. The international jury comprises experienced experts from different disciplines and the award has been running for more than 60 years.
“When developing the new Volvo flagship, an inside-out user approach has been the core” says Dan Frykholm, design director, Volvo Buses. “We have created a friendly and relaxing overall interior, with a safe and impressive exterior character. We are thrilled and grateful that the result is receiving such attention.”
The award will be presented in July 2019, in Essen’s, Aalto-Theater as part of the Red Dot Gala.
