A Glimpse at Volvo's Future Plans For Safety

Volvo has made a big claim that in 2020, nobody will be seriously injured in a new Volvo.

Starting in 2017, a self-driving Volvo cars will hit the streets of Gothenburg with real drivers behind the wheel. These aren't trained test drivers, or engineers, or Volvo employees, but real end-users driving in real traffic conditions.

It's the first time anything like this has been attempted.

Volvo is working closely with the government to make sure that there are traffic laws in place that allow for autonomous vehicles. It's a joint effort, but well worth the collaboration.

Cars that drive themselves are a big piece in the puzzle of reducing car-related injuries.

After all, while a human driver can be distracted, confused, tired, or frustrated, a car will always drive with the same caution and awareness of surroundings. Driver error becomes entirely removed from the equation.

Volvo's current vehicles, like the Volvo XC90 on which the self-driving models will be based, already have advanced sensors that can detect pedestrians in the road and brake automatically to avoid a collision.

At Velde Volvo, we believe Volvo can reach their 2020 goal. Come visit us, and let our knowledgeable team introduce you to all of Volvo's current safety features.
