"Our vision is that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car."

Håkan Samuelsson, President and CEO, Volvo Cars



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.

Aiming for zero

Volvo Cars' Safety Vision 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.


Knowledge is the key

By continually learning and innovating we aim to put an end to fatalities and severe injuries on the roads. Our methods are unique and far-reaching, combining exhaustive research, computer simulations and thousands of crash tests with data from real-life collisions.
