Volvo's 2018 Lineup Blends a Tradition of Safety and Quality with Modern Technology and Convenience


Volvo has been making vehicles for over ninety years. The Swedish automaker knows a thing or two about how to build safe, dependable vehicles. It invented the three point seatbelt in 1959, allowing the rest of the world to use it as well. The three point seat belt has increased crash survivability rates by about fifty percent. It also has saved roughly one million lives, and counting.

A History of Safety and Innovation

People think of Volvo as being a safe automaker, and that is true. But that's only part of the story. In 1959, Volvo's pioneering invention not only saved lives and made Volvo vehicles extra safe, but it also was extremely innovative at the time. Volvo has continued to innovate not only in the safety department, with features like City Safety autonomous braking in 2008, but also with new goals. Vision 2020 is among Volvo's noteworthy goals. It stipulates that "no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car by 2020". Also in place is "Drive Me" - a program that should see 100 self-driving vehicles used on public roads in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Volvo also is poised to produce electric vehicles, with a plan to produce plug-in hybrid versions of each available new Volvo model.
