This I have to share. If it’s true it’s truly amazing:
I re-quote a caption from a video of a 50 mph head-on crash between a Volvo and a 42 ton truck coming the other way presumably at a similar speed, in Jeremy Clarkson’s column in the Sunday Telegraph Magazine of 15th July 2018. Once the dust and debris had settled the driver calmly opened what was left of the door. But the caption:
“Since it was launched in the UK 14 years ago, no one has died in a Volvo XC90. Ever.”
Volvo claimed some time ago that by 2020 no one will die in any of their cars. They can’t prevent someone having a heart attack, or croaking on the back seat from elderliness, but somehow they are confident that their cars can withstand any accident. How about drowning in a flood, or being carried up in a tornado? OK, so there might be exceptions, but on the strength of the XC90s 14 year track record, it’s a car to die for.
