A greater flexibility
Instead of a physical key, Volvo customers will be offered an app that transforms their mobile phone
into a unique digital car key. This digital key will be capable of doing everything a physical key does,
such as locking and unlocking the doors and starting the engine, but it will also allow Volvo drivers to
enjoy greater flexibility. For example, if a family member, friend or co-worker wanted to borrow your car,
you could send the digital key to them via their mobile phone instead of having to deliver it by hand.
Renting a car could also become easier as you could use the app to book and pay for a rental car
anywhere in the world. The digital key could then be delivered directly to your phone. This new
technology also means Volvo drivers could receive more than one digital key, which would let them
access different cars in different locations. So, instead of sitting idle all day, cars could be used more
efficiently by whoever the owner wishes. It seems the possibilities presented by keyless technology
are endless! With the introduction of Volvo Cars’ pioneering digital key technology, it looks like the
days of desperately searching through bags, coats and trouser pockets for that elusive set of
car keys could soon be over.
