AstaZero is the world’s first full-scale proving ground for future traffic safety solutions. Its opening has brought Volvo Car Group a step closer to realising their vision that by 2020 no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo car.
“Safety testing under realistic circumstances is a prerequisite for developing our active safety systems,” says Anders Axelson of Volvo Cars Safety Centre. He continues: “The facility will play several important roles: not only will it help us meet our safety vision, developing cars that don’t crash, it will also help us further develop safety functions that will address non-motorists, such as pedestrians and cyclists.”
Volvo continues to produce some of the safest cars on the road that are routinely tested in extremely harsh conditions. AstaZero shows a commitment to the ultimate in safety – simply having no crashes at all. To find out how Volvo has saved your life with a safety feature, view the video courtesy of XCar below.
