Volvo has decided to enter the car subscription market themselves and offer their own, new cars to people looking for hassle-free car ownership experience. It's the first car manufacturer to do this.
At the time of writing they are offering four different models with different trim option - XC40, XC60, V60 and V90.
To get a car on subscription through Volvo Care you'll need to:
The benefit of going with Volvo is that you can really customise the car. But keep in mind, personalised cars usually take 2-3 months to arrive, while a pre-built model is ready within 1 month.

Volvo's eligibility criteria is very much in line with other subscription services.
There isn’t a sign-up fee with Volvo Care which many will be happy to hear.
Once your car order is confirmed, Volvo will take the first monthly subscription fee as a prepayment. Then once your car has been delivered, you'll be charged to cover month two, essentially your subscription fee is always paid a month in an advance.
Similarly to other car subscription services, you one monthly payment will include, road (VED) tax, maintenance, wear & tear (incl. tyres), courtesy car. Home delivery is also free.

When it comes to convenience, the all-inclusive monthly fee is hard to beat. It's the simplest way to own a car but that always comes at a price. Combine that and the fact that Volvo is not a budget brand at all, you may need to fork out a fair bit more than usual.
However, the fact you can customise the car you want and the flexible terms, means that Care by Volvo can be a great option for many who can afford to enjoy the benefits.
