Volvo introduces Care Key as standard on all cars for safe car sharing
Volvo reveals the Care Key, allowing any Volvo buyer to set a speed limit for themselves, their family members or friends. 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’ licence.
The Care Key will come as standard on all Volvo cars from model year 2021.
Volvo has also announced installation of cameras and other sensors on board its cars capable of monitoring the driver and allowing the car to intervene in the event that a driver clearly distracted or in a state of mental and physical alteration does not react to the signals of alert and risk of causing an accident.
Introduction of the cameras on all Volvo models will start on the next generation of scalable SPA2 vehicle platform in the early 2020s. Details on the exact amount of cameras and their positioning in the interior will follow at a later stage.
