In its continuing interest to keep abreast of technological developments in the area of emission controls, the Environmental Protection Agency requested Volvo of America Corporation to allow EPA to perform emissions testing on a prototype Volvo fitted with their three-way-catalyst system (TWC). Volvo agreed and sent a vehicle from Sweden which arrived in Ann Arbor on November 8, 1974. The catalyst had 4000 miles accumulated on it and had been tested for emissions prior to shipment; results indicated that emissions levels were below the 1977 Federal Emissions Standards of .41 grams per mile hydrocarbons (HC), 3.4 grams per mile carbon monoxide (CO), and 2.0 grams per mile oxides of nitrogen (NOx).
