Omtanke isn’t just a word.
It’s a lens through which you can view the world, and see things differently.
It’s a new perspective.
A considerate, more caring one.
Omtanke shines a brighter light on the things that really matter, and that helps us focus on making those things better.
On making the world better.
We welcome you to try it.
Every Volvo model line will have an electric motor variant from 2019. And by 2025, 50 percent of our sales will be fully electric cars, making us the first major automotive manufacturer to make this progressive move.
But our commitment to sustainability goes beyond cars. In addition to committing to using repurposed materials in Volvo cars (at least 25 percent of plastics in our cars launched after 2025 will be recycled), we’re removing single-use plastics from our offices, canteens and events. We’re also working towards making our global operations carbon neutral by 2025; our Skövde engine plant in Sweden already has a zero CO2 emissions footprint.
As the inventors of the three-point safety belt, rearward-facing child safety seat and countless other innovations, it’s no secret that we’ve given safety a lot of thought. And now, through our IntelliSafe technologies, we’re rethinking how people experience driving altogether.
Our Pilot Assist feature gives you more control, with steering assistance to keep you on track, even on highways at up to 130km an hour. And with our intuitive Active Cruise Control, you can maintain a safe distance from the car in front, minimising the likelihood of an accident.
There’s no such thing as a difficult parking spot with Park Assist, and with City Safety Technology including Lane Keeping Aid, Oncoming Lane Mitigation and Cross Traffic Alert, your Volvo is now intelligent enough to look out for you.
We’re continuously looking to improve our safety features, and inspire change. Since the year 2000, the risk of being hurt in an accident when you're in a Volvo has been reduced by 50 percent. And it's helped bring us even closer to our vision of zero fatalities or serious injuries in, or by, a new Volvo by 2020.
With every car we make, we make sure we adhere to the minimalist design aesthetic that Scandinavians are famous for. Sleek exteriors, pared back layouts and stylish cabins, combined with intuitive technologies like LED mood lighting and smart storage, create functional yet stunning cars like the XC40.
Our commitment to making life more effortless extends into how we develop our technology. Intuitive features like wireless charging, the Sensus Display and hands-free tailgate make for a more connected and effortless drive. It’s the little things that make a big difference.
A compassionate, considered approach does more than inspire us build better cars; it shapes how we see the world. Omtanke drives us to solve problems of all shapes and sizes by applying our knowledge and technology in thoughtful, innovative ways.
