1983 Volvo Concept Car Previewed Today's Green Tech


More recently, they've also previewed new drivetrain technologies and materials, as products are now expected to minimize their impact on the environment.

Volvo, ever the straight-laced and sensible automaker, made a green concept car before it was cool--the 1983 LCP 2000.

Now in its thirtieth year, the LCP previewed light-weight materials and efficient drivetrain options.

LCP stands for 'Light Component Project', so named for the light-weight plastics, magnesium and aluminum used throughout its construction.

Volvo set itself stringent targets for the LCP 2000's specification: It must weigh no more than 700 kilograms (1,543 pounds), accommodate a minimum of two people, and use under 4 liters of fuel per 100 kilometers--58.8 mpg or better.
