Simply put, safety has been one of our core values and a top priority since the earliest days of Volvo Trucks. Our Zero Accident Vision means that no Volvo truck should be involved in an accident. We’re not there yet, but we continue to lead the way in improving road safety – especially when it comes to the interplay between driver, truck, and surrounding traffic.
Since 1927, safety has been the guiding principle for everything we build. We invented the three-point safety belt and were the first to introduce it as a standard feature in trucks. We also introduced the driver-side airbag and are still the only truck manufacturer to include it as standard in every vehicle we make. Building on this legacy, Volvo has upgraded to standard LED lighting, and now offers an optional integrated side-impact airbag for rollover protection, as well as a forward collision warning for emergency braking situations.
