Staying sustainable. Staying alive
To limit global warming, we have to cut carbon emissions. And if we want to cut carbon emissions, more cars have to become electric. In Gothenburg, the European Investment Bank financed R&D to develop Volvo Cars’ mild hybrids and longer-range electric battery vehicles. We also financed research into active safety systems and functions, such as collision avoidance, and improved driver-assistance features, some of which are already available on current Volvo models. Because, after all, staying safe is part of sustainability, too.
