Safety has been our guiding star since 1927 when Volvo first was founded. Today, more than 90 years later, we’re still leading the way with a range of pioneering safety innovations that are making their way throughout the vehicle industry. And our vision is clear: zero accidents with Volvo Group products.
For us, safety is so much more than just developing innovative safety solutions in our products. We also have a responsibility in society and an important role to play when it comes to making road traffic safer. And we know we can make a difference. Volvo Group is one of the world’s largest companies in terms of safety research for commercial vehicles. Further, we push the limits for safety standards, by setting up even higher safety requirements than what the market demands.
Volvo has the industry’s strongest reputation for safety innovations. We introduced the ABS braking system, power steering and compressed air brakes. And the work goes on. We constantly improve in our drive towards zero accidents.
Safety is a cornerstone in our legacy and in our strategy for the future, taking us steadily closer to our zero accident vision.
We are well aware of the fact that our buses cannot prevent all accidents by themselves, regardless of how safe they may be. Accidents can happen nevertheless, due to human error and the environment in which our buses are used. In the event of an accident our task is to minimise the consequences for drivers, passengers and other road users. Here are three protections systems that significantly reduce the risk of serious injuries in collisions with passenger cars.
