Volvo could be safe choice for anyone buying a car

Thu, 13 Aug 2009
Safety-conscious motorists planning on buying a car in the coming years may want to opt for a Volvo model, if recent comments from the manufacturer are anything to go by.

The group has set itself a target when it comes to protecting its customers, which it hopes to achieve in the next decade.

Managing director Peter Rask stated: "The company is … aiming towards a vision that by 2020, nobody should be killed or injured in a Volvo."

He issued this statement after the group received a Special International Award from the Commission for Global Road Safety.

The firm was honoured in this way to mark the 50th anniversary of the three-point seatbelt - a Volvo invention.

Prince Michael of Kent presented the accolade in his capacity as a patron for the awarding organisation.

In other motoring news, Volvo has previously claimed exemptions to the London congestion charge should include all environmentally-friendly cars - not just hybrids.
