Interview with Volvo design vice president Peter Horbury
CAR recently spent some time one-to-one with Peter Horbury, Volvo’s new vice president of design. Horbury, who pioneered Volvo’s modern look in his previous stint as design boss from 1991 to 2002 spent five and a half years in charge of Ford’s North American design studio.
But in May 2009, Volvo CEO Stephen Odell asked Horbury to return to the top job in Gothenburg. Here he discusses car design in general, the ongoing sale of Volvo to China’s Geely and his plans for future Volvo cars.
