Volvo Cars company is a Swedish car manufacturer co-founded in 1927 by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson. The company is based in Gothenburg producing sport utility vehicles, station wagons, sedans and compact executive sedans introducing approximately 70 models to the international market. Volvo Car is one of the most well-known and respected car brands in the world and is heralding an all-electric future.
The safety level in Volvo cars is one of the highest in the world, a result of Volvo's own extremely rigorous quality requirements. For decades, safety research has been a priority area and has two points of focus: limiting the risk of an accident occurring in the first place; in other words, the car behaves exactly as the driver expects in an unforeseen situation, reducing the risk of injury if an accident should nonetheless occur.
In many cases, Volvo's safety work has set the standard and led to legal requirements in countries such as the USA relating to windscreen defrosters, windscreen wipers, three-point safety belts and head restraints on the front seats. In 1959, Volvo was the first car manufacturer in the world to equip its cars with safety belts as standard. Another area in which Volvo has been one of the pioneers is child safety, with child seats for children of different ages and integrated child protection. When a new car is developed, crash tests are constantly conducted to ensure that the technical design solutions comply with the set requirements and computer-simulated crash tests are conducted at the design stage.
An in-house accident research team studies accidents in which Volvo cars have been involved. The experience this team acquires then forms the basis of modifications and improvements to future models.
