Volvo Car Corporation, a car manufacturer with a history of over 80 years, is well known for its innovative products which influenced the whole car industry.
The laminated glass windscreen in 1944, the 3-point safety belt saving millions of lives since its introduction in 1959, the lambdasond introduced in 1977 in combination with a three-way catalyst, cleaning emissions by more than 90%, are only some examples. New innovative products are the City Safety System for avoiding a collision and introduced with the XC60, and the Pedestrian Detection with full auto-brake introduced with the new S60.
Naturally, our successful and innovative products inspire others, and we receive every year unsolicited suggestions and ideas from all over the world.
We are currently overviewing our internal process to improve the handling of incoming external ideas and do not handle any submissions at this moment.
