How Volvo Cars can change your life

We are redefining personal mobility

We want to provide freedom to move in a personal, sustainable and safe way. We do this by putting your needs first — using the best available technology to serve you, inventing new technology where none already exists and combining technologies to deliver new experiences.

We are committed to pursuing the following visions:

No one should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo car by 2020.
We want to give back one week of quality time per year through a new Volvo car by 2025.
Around 50 per cent of the cars we produce and sell will be electric by 2025.

At Volvo Cars we innovate for a better life. Our focus is you and your world.

We do things differently

We have always put people first at Volvo Cars. We do this with a clear focus on these three key innovation areas. We believe that technology should set us free – not enslave us. Learn more about our innovation focus areas below.

A collaborative approach

We believe we can innovate for a better future. This is why we are working with some of the world’s top tech companies. We work with Amazon on in-car delivery, with Google on the next generation of in-car connectivity and services and with Baidu and Uber on the development of new autonomous solutions for their business. Our partnerships and collaborations are aimed at capturing the best of today’s technology and service offerings to enhance your Volvo car experience.

Innovation greenhouse

We work closely with tech start-ups and established technology companies through the Volvo Cars Tech Fund, based in Silicon Valley, to nurture the innovations that will take us into a better future.

A vision of things to come

In the not too distant future we see a world where fully connected, autonomous electric vehicles are the answer to personal mobility needs. We’ve developed the 360c Concept to bring our vision of the future to life. Individual mobility needs are evolving. Solutions must offer a safe, environmentally sound, yet personal and comfortable travel experience. This will require a whole new way of thinking about what a car is and how we use it.

Innovation never goes out of style

We like to look forward and find new ways to engage you, to make your life easier and more enjoyable. We’ve been doing this for years.
