What does the w stand for on a volvo s80 t6?

The W button next to the shifter is for wet/icy roads when the wheels tend to slip more easily. Pushing this button lowers the torque on the wheels (by propelling the car in second gear rather than first when coming out of a stop). This lessens the chance that the wheels will slip when you first press the gas pedal, making it easier to maintain traction.
