Chronicling Volvo’s Safety record

Volvo has always been known to be the automaker producing the safest cars in the world. The automaker’s motto, "Volvo for life" is attributed to the reliability and safety of their cars. Volvo’s company symbol, (which could represent either the male symbol, the symbol of Mars or the metal related to the planet Mars, iron; in fact, the same symbol) actually refers to iron ore, and stands for "Rolling Strength."

Thanks to Wikipedia, here is a chronological list of the security features Volvo has implemented and continues to implement over the years in their cars:

Being the foremost in automotive safety, what will Volvo come up next to make our driving experience worry-free? What innovations can we expect from their quality Volvo parts? Perhaps a new anti-whiplash system in their cars’ seat system, much like the one from Johnson Controls?

At the 2007 North American International Auto Show held recently in Detroit, Johnson Controls, a Detroit-based auto supplier introduced its "platinum rear-impact solution" – a high-tech seat system which aims to help cut whiplash-related injuries.

A new U.S. requirement is set to take effect on September 1, 2008 toughening anti-whiplash standards. According to the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, neck strains and sprains are the most serious injuries reported in 30-40 percent of auto insurance claims. Such injuries reportedly cost at least billion a year in the United States.
