To summon help in case of illness, external threats to the car or passengers, Volvo Assistance can be alerted manually by depressing the SOS button for at least 2 seconds. The car calls Volvo Assistance and a message is sent containing the car's position, among other things.

Volvo Assistance tries to establish verbal contact with the car's driver and to find out the extent of the emergency situation and the need for help.

You can use the button for other assistance, e.g. questions on the use of the car or if you need roadside assistance.
