If it is possible to own a word, Volvo owns the word Safety. It’s who we are. It is built into our brand heritage and culture. It’s a significant part of the Volvo DNA 
Safety is the kind of work that never stops. That’s why we’ve painstakingly compiled accident data since 1969. That is 50 years of continuous analysis from more than 1700 accidents. It’s a huge commitment and one that we take very seriously.  
We’re in the lab, we’re in the design studio, we’re in the engineering department and we are in the cab you drive. Not to mention all the organisations we talk to in order to promote better safety awareness. The list goes on and it’s why we can say with certainty that we are: Driving progress in safety. 
But today’s safety requirements may well be different to those of tomorrow. In a fast-changing world the demands are changing all the time. What will safety look like in tomorrow’s world? We have some very good theories, but nobody can be 100% certain. 
But whatever it turns out to be, we will be there to not only take on the challenge but also share what we know, making the environment safer for you, other drivers, road users and pedestrians. Every day.
