Volvo tests other kinds of emissions - New Car Smell - in their cars
The interior of a modern vehicle contains many different materials that contain chemical substances. While most of these substances remain locked in the material, small quantities can evaporate, creating that "new car smell". The panel monitors these substances and the smells they may cause in the cabin.
In Volvo's tests, each car is rated on a scale of 1 to 6, with 6 being unbearable. Higher than 3 = failed. Additionally, each car is heated up to simulate the baking the interior gets in the hot sun.
