Spares for VOLVO
Volvo cars are considered to be among the safest vehicles in the world. The company was founded by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson in 1927. Since 2010, the Swedish manufacturer is a part of the Geely Automobile Holding.
Technical specifications of Volvo cars
All new Volvo cars are equipped with an advanced safety system IntelliSafe even in the base trim level. Thus, the City Safety system, which works days and nights, identifies objects ahead of the car using a radar and a camera. As soon as it detects an obstacle, it warns the driver about danger, and if the driver doesn’t react, the system applies the brakes automatically. The City Safety may have steering support, which helps to avoid collisions in some cases. The XC90 off-roader, which won more than 100 awards around the world, is equipped with this system. It became the first car of its class to get the highest score in the Autonomous Emergency Braking Car to Car rear-end tests. The XC40 crossover, S60 and S90 saloons, as well as V60 and V90 estates produced in 2019, achieved 5-star rating in the Euro NCAP crash tests.
The entire modern model range of the company is equipped with the Pilot Assist, which maintains a safe speed and distance to the vehicle driving ahead and keeps the car within its lane. In European and North American countries, the system is connected to a navigator and makes driving in curves easier. Pilot Assist slows down the vehicle before a turn on the basis of the map data. This system is used at a speed of up to 130 km/h.
The cars have adaptive cruise control, which lets the driver select the desired speed (no more than 200 km/h) and time gap to the vehicle ahead. As soon as the radar identifies that the car ahead slows down, the Volvo car reduces speed automatically. The vehicle resumes the specified speed when the lane is clear.
If the vehicle has departed from its lane and is driving into a ditch, the Run-off Road Protection, receives corresponding data from special sensors and tightens the seat belts to keep the passengers in their seats efficiently.
The manufacturer cares about the environment as well. The XC40 crossover, equipped with all-wheel drive and 408 hp electric motor, was the first company’s electric vehicle. Starting from 2020, Volvo plans to release a new model of the electric car every year.
