Volvo wants to start a discussion about whether the automaker by applying constraints to change the behavior of drivers. As mark is ready to take “active responsibility” for the security, she believes such intervention is their right or even duty.

The Swedish brand is celebrating the 60th anniversary of three-point seat belt — “probably the most important invention in the history of automotive safety.” This device, which became the industry standard, saved, estimated to Volvo, more than a million lives. What’s next? The company has already decided in 2020 to limit the maximum speed of their cars at around 180 km/h Now put forward three initiatives: the E. V. A. project (Equal for all vehicles), key Care Key and the camera that monitors the driver’s behaviour. It’s all part of the strategy Vision 2020, under which the dead and seriously injured in a new Volvo car should not be.

Project E. V. A. aims to provide the same level of safety in the car for everyone, but the emphasis is on the protection of women. After all, they are, according to Volvo, are at greater risk of an accident due to anatomical features. For example, the cervical spine in men stronger.

Initiative E. V. A., the company are willing to share their research in the security sphere, ongoing since the 1950s. More than a hundred articles based on a thorough analysis of tens of thousands of real-world accidents. In particular, the digital library offers access to content on protection against whiplash and injuries of the lumbar spine.

Key Care Key will go “in the” all Volvo cars from 2021. It allows owners to set speed limit for yourself, family members and friends who use one machine. The idea is that Care Key is particularly useful for teenagers, just got a license.

In early 2020-ies Volvo promises to provide the next generation platform SPA, which is called the SPA2. In the basic equipment of all models, built on a “truck”, will include a system of cameras and other sensors that continuously monitors the state of the driver. The main task — the fight against drunk driving (cause 30% of accidents) and distraction.

The prototype two cameras mounted at the upper corners of the windshield, but the exact number of “eyes” and their location in the cabin will be released at a later date.

If the “obviously drunk” or distracted the driver does not react to the warning signals a long time looking at the road, sitting with eyes closed, acting too slowly or, on the contrary, extremely rebuilt — the car gets a right to intervene. It limits the speed alerts support through the service Volvo on Call, and in an extreme case, brakes to a full stop and finds a safe Parking. Except that the police is not, though…

However, along with the carrot there is the carrot in the form of “financial benefits”: good driver not only avoid trouble, but will be much less to pay for insurance. Soon Volvo will announce the first of several agreements with the insurance companies in Sweden. Specific terms of the transaction will depend on conditions in a particular market.

Simple solution: as every year to go to the new crossover Nissan

CA-EN: Auto Europe Car Rentals - Car Rental Insurance Guide - brought to you by Auto Europe **CANADIAN RESIDENTS**

Most new car buyers still operating in the traditional way, buying a car on credit and paying it in three years, sell a car, to make a new one. However, there are those who have already tasted the benefits of leasing programs, thanks to which owning a car is not burdened with either service or insurance or taxes or other related costs, and the car can be replaced with new at least every year. It is a program jointly developed Major and Nissan. How it works, and what is the benefit?

Affiliate material

Te who are familiar with the leasing scheme, it is easy to guess in the “Simple solution” is one of such proposals. A distinctive feature of the service from Major – regular updates to vehicle: the contract for the rental of the car is signed for one year, after which the customer can either buy a car on favorable terms, or that is more logical for the leasing scheme, to exchange it for a new one.

What is the benefit?

To understand the benefits of the proposal, it is sufficient to compare it with the standard purchase of a car on credit. As an example, take the “average” variant: Nissan Qashqai for 1.6 million rubles. The first condition for the acquisition of the loan is the initial fee in the amount of 450 thousand rubles. Of course, the loan is accompanied by a mandatory insurance of the collateral: for CTP and hull will have to pay 50 thousand and 30 thousand will cost life insurance that is also required by most banks. Things like floor mats and a set of the motorist at the time of purchase against the General background seem unnoticed, however, and they are 5-6 thousand to spend.

So, paying a lump sum of about 540 thousand, the buyer leaves the showroom. Considering the average annual mileage in the first year of owning the car he will need to pass one to buy a set of winter tires and twice to set. Taking into account the cost THAT 1 in 12 thousand and a decent winter tire as well as tire service and seasonal storage of tires routine maintenance will take another 60. Throw in 5 thousand roubles of the transport tax for the 144-strong car – and get almost the full cost of owning a car, not including optional “special stages” such as replacing the music, seat covers and other.

Well, the third item of expenditure when buying a car on credit is actually a loan. In our conditions, subject to a monthly payment of 37 thousand for the first year will have to pay 444 thousand rubles. Adding to this the amount of the initial contribution and the cost of insurance and owning a car in the first year, we get about 1.1 million – and ahead of a few years of the loan, maintenance of compulsory insurance and so on.

Against this background, the program “Simple solution” fully justifies its name. The fact is that, choosing a car, simply arrive at the dealership with a package of documents, to make an advance payment equal to one monthly – and go on a new car. Do not need to insure himself or the car at your expense, no need to pay for registration, no need to pay extra for floor mats and even THEN: everything is included in the monthly payment. Given that the leasing scheme the actual owner is the lessor in the face of a major Pro, vehicle tax, insurance and registration pays for it. Thus, to go from the salon on the new Nissan Qashqai, in this case you will need to 33.5 thousand rubles – and no unaccounted for additional costs.

The second advantage of leasing – no need to pay for the service and maintenance of the car: all of this is also taken into account in the monthly payment. Getting to use the machine on the program “Simple solution”, the client receives a “complete” winter tires, free tire and seasonal storage of wheels, and-1. Simply put, we can only fill the car and drive it – all the rest is already taken care of in advance.

The idea is that customers version want N Line thereby to make a bold statement, and the project is called appropriately — Drive A Statement (“Control statement”). Now colored car will participate in events across Europe.
