Volvo has designed and developed the world’s first custom eclipse viewer for the standard panoramic moonroof in the 2018 XC60. Volvo says the viewers were sent to select Volvo dealers along the eclipse’s path, allowing XC60 owners to view the August 21, 2017 event safely and comfortably in their new crossover. Volvo dealers along the eclipse’s path are in Oregon, Idaho, Nebraska, Missouri and South Carolina and will be prioritized over other states.
The Panoramic Moonroof Eclipse Viewer is made with an ISO-certified 12312-2 material and features a magnetized frame to attach to the XC60’s roof. The size of the XC60’s panoramic moonroof allows viewing from all five seats.
Volvo will also be streaming the eclipse in virtual reality (VR) and 4K HD 360-degree video. Follow along at www.racingthesun.com.
