The Swedish way to a better life.
Our cars are designed to work best with how you live, in ways that genuinely make your life easier. We have trialled, for example, a system that allows people to use their cars as a delivery option. So you can have deliveries made safely and securely to your car. It’s all part of our desire to make sure your Volvo is truly ‘connected’ to all aspects of your life – we started on this journey long ago with our built-in SOS system, Volvo On Call.
Care for the world we live in is at the core of Volvo Cars. Our Drive-E powertrains are small and lightweight, so they offer as much power as significantly larger powertrains but with far better fuel consumption. That means our cars produce fewer harmful emissions and make better use of natural resources.
Our attention to detail in the interior of our cars goes beyond surface quality and aesthetics – we want our cars to be an environment that is healthy, soothing and luxurious in every sense. That’s why we even have a ‘smell team’ to make sure the experience inside a Volvo is like a fresh Swedish breeze.
What do you want to see in the next generation of the Volvo On Call mobile app? That’s the question we asked when we invited thousands of people to give us their feedback. Most said they wanted more intuitive features to simplify their lives and put them in control. So we took on board a great suggestion to let you find and pay for a parking space from your car.
At Volvo, we’ve been busy revolutionising the idea of the focus group. When creating our all-new Volvo XC90, for instance, we didn’t spend just a week or a month talking to the public. In fact, we shared a full three years with five ‘LA Influentials’ from California so we could gain a truly in-depth understanding of what they really wanted from a luxury SUV.
Wouldn’t it be good to take the stress out of your daily drive? Our autonomous driving programme for the future means that the car can look after the driving, allowing you to devote time to other personal duties. It’ll be safer and save fuel, too.
Everything we do is designed around people, so every innovation we make is designed to simplify and improve your life – and that has always carried through naturally into Volvo’s ethos of car making. Explore our Human Made stories, projects and partnerships further.
