Owning a vehicle comes with a host of perks, but it also requires certain responsibilities, and 'Volvo Concierge Services' will make it easier for Volvo owners to fulfill those. The pilot program is an app that allows Volvo drivers to remotely order services like car washes, gas fill ups, and even complete maintenance runs.

With the Volvo Concierge Services app, drivers can take of the little chores that come along with owning a car without having to take time out of their days. The system works by creating a single-use digital key that allows the service provider (e.g. the company coming to fill the tank or take the vehicle in for maintenance) to unlock and drive the car without needing the physical key.
