The Volvo 480 is a shooting brake that was produced in Born, Netherlands, by Volvo from 1986 to 1995. It was the first front-wheel drive car made by the automaker. The 480 was available in only one body style on a automobile platform related to the Volvo 440/460 five-door hatchback and four-door sedan models. It features an unusual 4-seat, 3-door hatchback body, somewhere between liftback and estate in form. The 480 was marketed as a coupé in Europe starting in 1986 and was originally intended to be marketed in the U.S. as a 2+2 "sports wagon" in the fall 1987, although the U.S. sales plans were cancelled.
