Aiming for zero
Vision 2020 is about reducing the number of people that die or are seriously injured in road traffic accidents to zero. Protecting and caring for people is at the heart of Volvo Cars’ philosophy and this is our commitment to saving lives.
Technology that saves lives
We have invented some of the most important breakthroughs in the history of car safety – including the three-point safety belt – saving over a million lives in the process. And there’s more to come. Our cars are packed with advanced features that are all inspired by our Safety Vision 2020. We are continually working on technology to make future vehicles safer still.
Knowledge is the key
By continually learning and innovating we aim to put an end to fatalities and severe injuries on the roads. Our method is one-of-a-kind and far-reaching, combining exhaustive research, computer simulations and thousands of crash tests with data from real-life collisions to make us world leaders in safety.
Driven by saving lives
Safe driving is at the heart of Volvo Cars. Our founders said: “Cars are driven by people – the guiding principle behind everything we make at Volvo, therefore, is and must remain safety.” Those values remain intact, and in 2008 we set out our Vision 2020.
Safeguarding our future
At Volvo Cars, we don’t accept that globally 1.3 million people should die every year in road traffic accidents. Vision 2020 is our way of creating more sustainable personal transport. It’s a key element in our sustainability framework, which outlines how our company protects people and the world around us, both now and in the future.
