With groundbreaking safety technology to come as standard, Volvo will aim to set a new standard for automotive safety.

28 Jun 2021 | International News : Sweden

Volvo's upcoming all-electric flagship SUV will include industry-leading safety technology as standard, helping the Swedish automaker set a new benchmark for automotive safety.

The fully electric successor to the Volvo XC90, which will be revealed in 2022, will come with state-of-the-art sensors, including LiDAR technology developed by Luminar, and an autonomous driving computer powered by NVIDIA DRIVE Orin. Both systems will be fitted as standard.

Where previous generations of technology largely relied on warning the driver for potential immediate threats, this new safety technology will actively intervene as needed to prevent collisions. Over-the-air updates will keep the technology's software cutting-edge and up-to-date.

With the addition of sophisticated safety technology to its vehicles, Volvo also sees the potential benefit of lower insurance costs as car crashes involving Volvo cars become increasingly rare. As such, the Volvo Care package, which will come as standard on all fully electric Volvo cars, will also include insurance coverage where available. More details will be given at the Volvo Cars Tech Moment on 30 June.
