Your life, your car, connected
Your phone is the key
We are making it easier than ever to access and share your Volvo by enabling you to use your phone as a key. Digital key technology will allow you to open and start your car with your phone, share a key with friends, family and colleagues, and use car sharing services wherever you are in the world. Volvo is currently testing this convenient Bluetooth-based technology in Sweden and plans to become the world’s first car manufacturer to offer it to customers, in a limited-edition car, in 2017.
The race for perfection
In this article, we visit the Volvo Ocean Race Boatyard in Lisbon, Portugal. Here, we meet the team of experts responsible for repairing and re-fitting the entire fleet of Volvo Ocean 65 boats that will compete in the 2017-18 edition of the Volvo Ocean Race. We describe each team member’s individual area of expertise and show how the team works together to ensure that each boat is repaired identically, on time and to the highest possible standard. Their expertise in different areas represents the same level of competence you find at a Volvo workshop. We also meet Swedish sailor Martin Strömberg, who won the 2011-12 edition of the race, to find out what a great service programme gives him as a sailor.
