"Our vision is that by 2020 no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car."
Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO, Volvo Cars
Everything we do starts with people. That’s why we made the commitment that by 2020, no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo.
Vision 2020 is about reducing the number of people that die or are seriously injured in road traffic accidents to zero. Protecting and caring for people is at the heart of Volvo Cars’ philosophy and this is our commitment to saving lives.
By continually learning and innovating we aim to put an end to fatalities and severe injuries on the roads. Our methods are unique and far-reaching, combining exhaustive research, computer simulations and thousands of crash tests with data from real-life collisions to make us world leaders in safety.
We have invented some of the most important innovations in the history of car safety – including the three-point safety belt – saving over a million lives in the process. And there’s more to come. Our cars are packed with advanced features that will help us achieve Vision 2020. We are continually working on technology to make future vehicles safer still.
