1,000,000 safety equipped Volvos on the road
The sales of Volvo cars equipped with systems for automatic braking passed the one million mark today.
Volvo Cars' technology for automatic braking includes several world firsts: City Safety, which is standard on all models (except XC90) and works at speeds up to 31mph; Collision Warning with full auto brake; and Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection with full auto brake.
"Several recent reports state that our groundbreaking auto braking technologies help reduce the risk of being involved in a rear-end accident by more than 20 per cent. One million Volvos with auto brake on the roads take us towards our aim that nobody should be killed or suffer serious injuries in a new Volvo car by the year 2020," says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo Car Group.
