Cars Volvo has always been one of the safest on the market, and for some time they were considered the most safe.

For example, Volvo has a Volvo Vision 2020 initiative, under which the company aims to have, by 2020, its cars never appeared in a fatal accident. More specifically, the drivers and passengers of Volvo cars in any accident needs to stay alive. However, everyone understands that sometimes there are situations when there is no car, no matter how strong he was and no matter how the system was equipped with neither, can't save its passengers.

anyway, today it became known about the next step in Volvo on the way to their goal, and this step is quite unexpected and controversial. The company announced that all its vehicles with the 2021 model year will be limited to a maximum speed of 180 km/h. Yes, it's very considerable value and it is higher than the maximum speed limit on most roads in the world, and Volvo in General is primarily positioned as a comfort and family, but still, such a limit may alienate customers.

However, in any case, it is unlikely according to statistics, the percentage of accidents at speeds over 180 km/h of any noticeable.
