Dedicated to safety

The Story of Volvo

Protecting people and making lives better has and always will be part of Volvo Cars’ DNA. The next step in our journey is Vision 2020.



"Volvo Cars has a vision that nobody should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo."
Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO, Volvo Cars

  
  

Aiming for zero

Reducing the number of people that die or are seriously injured in road traffic accidents to zero is a bold target that we aim to achieve. Protecting and caring for people is at the heart of Volvo Cars' philosophy and Vision 2020 is our commitment to saving lives.

Knowledge is the key

By continually learning and innovating we aim to put an end to fatalities and severe injuries on the roads. Our methods are unique and far-reaching, combining exhaustive research, computer simulations and thousands of crash tests with data from real-life collisions to make us world leaders in safety.

Technology that saves lives

We have invented some of the most important innovations in the history of car safety - including the three-point safety belt - saving over a million lives in the process. And there's more to come. Our cars are packed with advanced features that will help us achieve Vision 2020. We are continually working on technology to make future vehicles safer still.

 Speed cap

To send a strong signal about the dangers of speeding, we reduced the top speed of all our new cars to 112 mph in 2020. We are also looking at how smart speed control and geofencing technology could automatically limit speeds near schools and hospitals in the future.

 Highway pilot

With support from LiDAR sensors, the next generation of Volvo cars will be hardware-ready for autonomous drive. And over time, we will push out over-the-air software updates to provide fully autonomous highway driving.

 Driver monitoring cameras

To help address intoxication and distraction in traffic, we are working on new in-car solutions. Driver monitoring cameras, together with other sensors, will allow the car to intervene when a clearly intoxicated or distracted driver risks serious injury or death.

 Care Key

We've recently introduced the Care Key, aimed at addressing speeding. With the Care Key, Volvo car owners can put a speed cap on the car when lending it to a younger family member or less experienced driver as a way of ensuring a safer ride.
