Knowledge is the key
The circle of life
We use data from real-world collisions and rigorous research and testing to make our cars ever safer. Each new car is built using the knowledge gained from its predecessors – we call this process of continuous refinement and improvement the Circle of Life.

Local cooperation for a global vision
Building the safest cars in the world is not enough to realise Vision 2020 – we collaborate to help plan the safe roads and traffic infrastructure that will also save lives. By working with the Swedish Transport Administration in our home country we have created a model for global cooperation between car manufacturers and the transport authorities.
