Knowledge is the key

Cruising towards zero

Thomas Broberg, Senior Manager, Safety Strategy & Requirements at Volvo Cars, explains how we are working towards Vision 2020.

The circle of life

We use data from real-world collisions and rigorous research and testing to make our cars ever safer. Each new car is built using the knowledge gained from its predecessors – we call this process of continuous refinement and improvement the Circle of Life.

Local cooperation for a global vision

Building the safest cars in the world is not enough to realise Vision 2020 – we collaborate to help plan the safe roads and traffic infrastructure that will also save lives. By working with the Swedish Transport Administration in our home country we have created a model for global cooperation between car manufacturers and the transport authorities.
Jan Ivarsson - Deputy Director, Senior Technical Advisor, Safety
"Vision 2020 is a way of thinking and working. It’s like a religion for the company"
