"Our vision is that by 2020 no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car."
Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO, Volvo Cars
Aiming for zero
Vision 2020 is about reducing the number of people that die or are seriously injured in road traffic accidents to zero. Protecting and caring for people is at the heart of Volvo Cars’ philosophy and this is our commitment to saving lives.
Knowledge is the key
By continually learning and innovating we aim to put an end to fatalities and severe injuries on the roads. Our methods are unique and far-reaching, combining exhaustive research, computer simulations and thousands of crash tests with data from real-life collisions to make us world leaders in safety.
Technology that saves lives
We have invented some of the most important innovations in the history of car safety – including the three-point safety belt – saving over a million lives in the process. And there’s more to come. Our cars are packed with advanced features that will help us achieve Vision 2020. We are continually working on technology to make future vehicles safer still.
Exploring the smart cities of the future
Today, smart cities, where information and communication technology integrate with everyday life to make it safer, simpler and more convenient are set to transform big city driving. Where does your Volvo fit into this brave new world?
Cars that are capable of driving themselves, communicating with each other and that won’t crash? This is the future of personal transport – and it begins here.
Working at Volvo
Our innovators are shaping the way we will live in the future. Here, we look at the way that holograms and mixed reality are being used to push the boundaries of what is possible.
