Dear friends,
my name is Peter Ptáček and I am from Czech Republic. Saturday 22. November I saw on TV a reportage from Volvo ocean race as a eye-catcher before testing your car Volvo XC 70 D5 ocean race edition. It was a reason I had to write this mail. I beg your pardon, donīt consider this mail as a aggression. I hate diesel engine absolutely. In my opinion diesel is symbol for poverty and dirt.How you can celebrate such beautiful ocean race symbols like clear nature, fight with pure water, oneīs mind challenge etc. through diesel engine car? In my country, Sweden is considered as a very liable to living environment.Iīm a XC 90 gasoline owner, therefore I write to you.Iīm very sad when I see European diesel mania.Yes, of course you can say modern diesel is quiet and economic, but how is possible when Iīm walking on the streets I canīt breathe and I feel irritation in my neck?Especially in Prague, capital city of the Czech Republic, is a disel cars number alarming.Old even new , all are producing peculiar stifling smell. I rather donīt mention a huge black smoke often to see and characteristic tractor sound.And who is liable for our childrenīs health? I visited New York and Tokio and I didnīt smell stink.Why? Because almost no diesel. I would like to ask you for your human (no marketing) standpoint concerning a diesel future.I would like to know you really believe that diesel is OK and has no harmful impacts? Thank you very much.

Best regards
Peter Ptáček, Prague, Czech Republic
