Volvo's Lost Dvärg Line - The Mini Volvo Wagons That Almost Were

These are the only two pictures that remain of Volvo’s custom built dvärg line (miniature line). Volvo considered bringing these micro cars to market in 1998 in response to changes made to Sweden’s disability laws, which required domestic manufacturers to sell vehicles specifically designed for the vertically challenged. Volvo engineers named the cars Jan and Bo, after Volvo founder Assar Gabrielsson’s two children. No one knows what happened to the dvärg Volvos. Some say Jan and Bo were crushed, others say they have seen them darting around Trollhättan occasionally, and some say they never existed.
