      Question on Moose

      I'm kinda new to the Volvo world. I'm very happy with my 2011 S60 & 2011 XC60P. My question is, what is it with the moose? what does the moose mean to Volvo.

      Lamborghini has the Bull... Volvo has the moose. It's just a joke.

      Also an old Monty Python thing? "A moose once bit my sister" and all that.

      It's more than just a joke. Volvos are designed to be able to hit a moose, keep the passengers safe, and keep driving. There is (or there was) a dumby moose crash test for Volvos, so the prancing moose was a spoof on Ferrari while also a joke that Moose prance out of the way to avoid being hit by a Volvo.

      This has since become an iconic Volvo symbol since the late 80s and Prancing Moose badges can actually be purchased through many Volvo dealerships.
