We are making it easier than ever to access and share your Volvo by enabling you to use your phone as a key. Digital key technology will allow you to open and start your car with your phone, share a key with friends, family and colleagues, and use car sharing services wherever you are in the world. Volvo is currently testing this convenient Bluetooth-based technology in Sweden and plans to become the world’s first car manufacturer to offer it to customers, in a limited-edition car, in 2017.
Bound by sound
1966 was quite a year for music. The Beatles, The Beach Boys and Bob Dylan all released groundbreaking albums that completely transformed the cultural landscape. But while Lennon and McCartney and their contemporaries were busy reinventing the way music was made, a classical music enthusiast called John Bowers was focusing his attention and expertise on reinventing the way we listened to it.
A unique way of connecting people
In the past, keeping people connected was a lot more difficult than it is today. It took ingenuity, risk and a whole lot of manpower. We explore Sweden’s oldest and most ambitious way of keeping people connected – the Göta Canal.
