The Volvo Group is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of heavy vehicles. Accordingly, the company is also one of the leaders in terms of developing sustainable transport solutions of the future. In 2011, the Volvo Group invested more than SEK 13 billion in research and development.

Research and development has always been the most secretive aspect of a company. This is natural, since it involves launching new solutions ahead of competitors. Nevertheless, the Volvo Group has decided to display some of the company’s work for the future on its new website www.volvogroup.com/techworld.
