Ideas that change the world are often the most controversial

After Volvo introduced the 3-point safety belt, they faced a world of criticism. Since then, it has saved more than a million lives. Now it's time for the next step. For everyone's safety.

A million more. With new and existing safety features, Volvo are determined to save a million more lives.

Speed cap

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

Driver monitoring cameras

To help address intoxication and distraction in traffic, Volvo 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.

Highway pilot

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

Care Key

Volvo 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.
