Volvo's Safety Goal for 2020

Volvo has made a pledge: By 2020, no one will be killed or seriously injured behind the wheel of a new Volvo SUV or car.

"With the development of full autonomy we are going to push the limits of automotive safety," states Volvo safety engineer Erik Coelingh, "because if you make a fully autonomous vehicle you have to think through everything that potentially can happen with a car."

Most of the technology that's required for autonomous driving is already accessible from Volvo, which is great! But when you combine features like Adaptive Cruise Control, Auto lane keeping assist, Collision avoidance, Pedestrian detection, and Large animal detection in one package, it will essentially make the vehicle crash proof.

How's that for peace of mind behind the wheel? Make your way down to Friendship Volvo in Bristol, TN today and view our new inventory. Then, take a test drive in the Volvo you’ve had your eye on.
