Robert Pattinson, the unintentional ambassador of Volvo
A photograph manipulated by a Twilight Saga fan, on a website features Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) standing with his Volvo C30 (the one he drives in the first flick of the series, Twilight), which reads: ‘Forget a prince with a horse, I want a vampire with a Volvo’.
Volvo Car Corp. is a Swedish luxury automobile manufacturer. Formerly of Swedish ownership, the car making firm is now owned by Chinese Zhejiang Geely Holding Group. Volvo produces a wide range of sedans, SUVs, estate cars, compact executives and coupes. In 2011, the car makers recorded worldwide sales of around 450 thousand cars.
In Stephenie Meyer’s romantic series Twilight Saga, the Cullens dash around flaunting their Volvos. Most importantly, the mesmerising Edward Cullen drove Volvos throughout the series, from riding Bella for the first time to school to the duo leaving for their honeymoon in a Volvo.
