35 Volvo Innovations

From Sleek Swedish Concept Cars to Action Hero Auto Ads

— August 30, 2014 — Autos
It shouldn't be any surprise to come across Volvo innovations because of the Swedish brand's infamous attention to detail in all areas of production. Many are familiar with the safety features of a Volvo vehicle, but what we're seeing now is a further extension of that same expertise into the realms of marketing and luxury in ways never before thought possible.

Crossovers that are as sumptuous as a luxury sports car and advertisements that are witty as ever are just two overarching themes we're seeing in this collection of Volvo innovations. Building off of the brand's original namesake as being one of the safest vehicles to drive, Volvo is expanding sensory technology beyond our wildest dreams with technology that can drive the car itself to sensors that will apply the brakes if you're approaching an intersection too fast.
