Volvo Cars Introduces Care Key


Volvo Cars reveals the Care Key. This technology allows any Volvo buyer to set a speed limit for themselves, their family members or friends. The Care Key will come as a standard feature on all Volvo cars from model year 2021.

So what does the Care Key do? The Care Key allows Volvo drivers to set limitations on the car’s top speed, before lending their car to other family members or to younger and inexperienced drivers such as teenagers that only just received their drivers’ license.

The launch of the Care Key comes after the announcement that was made earlier that Volvo Cars will limit the top speed on all its cars to 112 mph beginning in 2020, in order to send a strong signal about the dangers of speeding.

The speed limit and the Care Key are both part of that initiative and illustrate how car makers can take active responsibility for striving to achieve zero traffic fatalities and supporting better driver behavior.

“We believe that a car maker has a responsibility to help improve traffic safety,” said Håkan Samuelsson, Volvo Cars’ chief executive. “Our recently announced speed limit fits that thinking and the Care Key is another example. Many want to be able to share their car with friends and family, but are unsure about how to make sure they are safe on the road. The Care Key provides one good solution and extra peace of mind.”

Beyond the potential safety benefits, features like a speed limit and the Care Key are also likely to offer Volvo drivers a financial benefit, as the company is currently inviting insurance companies in several markets to have conversations about offering special, favorable insurance rates to those with these Volvo vehicles who are using these safety features.
