Set your limits

Volvo’s Red Key accessory can place a ceiling on important vehicle parameters, such as top speed, to provide peace of mind for owners when their car is driven by someone else.

If you would like your Volvo to be driven responsibly even when someone else is driving it, then Volvo’s Red Key function-restricting accessory is for you.

Red Key allows you to control a number of functions available in your Volvo. By limiting certain functions, Red Key is ideal for times when your car is being lent out, and for encouraging less experienced drivers – such as young adults – to drive more responsibly.

Using Red Key, you can limit the top speed of your Volvo as well as set speed alerts to help drivers remain aware of their current speed. It can also be used together with the adaptive cruise control function to set a safe, fixed distance between your Volvo and the vehicle in front.

Red Key is not only used to limit speed and set safe distances. It can be used to set a maximum volume on your car’s audio system, so that the driver is always aware of external warning sounds. For extra reassurance, the safety systems in your Volvo will always remain fully active when Red Key is in use.

By allowing you to control certain functions in your Volvo, Red Key not only lets you lend your car out without having to worry, it also helps stop younger Volvo enthusiasts from getting too carried away!

I Roll

Volvo is Latin for 'I roll' and was originally trademarked in 1915 with ball bearing production in mind. But 18 million cars later, Volvo has come to mean much more. 

Volvo started making cars in 1927 because we believed nobody else was making them strong enough or safe enough for Swedish roads. Along the way we’ve come up with dozens of innovations, some of which have changed the world. And it’s this proud history that continues our drive forward to the next great Volvo Cars idea.
