Volvo Cars announced that it will limit the top speed on all its cars to 112 mph (180 km/h) starting in 2020 to improve safety. The company says that speeding is one of three "gaps" its research has identified as safety concerns in its ambition to completely end serious injuries and fatalities in its cars.
“Volvo is a leader in safety: we always have been and we always will be,” said Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive. "Because of our research we know where the problem areas are when it comes to ending serious injuries and fatalities in our cars. And while a speed limitation is not a cure-all, it’s worth doing if we can even save one life.”
