Volvo Car Corporation’s work on electrification technology insists that each battery-powered Volvo be as safe as any other new Volvo car.
For they apply the same high safety standards to all their products. However, the safety-related challenges may differ depending on the driveline and fuel being used. For Volvo, electrification technology is another exciting challenge. Especially in our quest to build the safest cars on the market. These comments generally came from safety expert Jan Ivarsson. He is the Senior Manager Safety Strategy & Requirements at Volvo Cars.
So a holistic approach and real-life traffic conditions. For they are always the starting-point. Especially for Volvo’s safety work. Based on their massive database with input from actual road accidents. So they know where the focus must lie in everyday traffic conditions. The solutions developed for their upcoming electric car are amazing. For they take into account the situations that are unique to this type of car. Also from Jan Ivarsson.
Everything from the way the cars are produced, used and serviced to the way they are recycled is analysed thoroughly and the information obtained is used to shape the development of the final production car.
