THE fully-electric Volvo C40 Recharge is now known as one of the safest cars on the road after being awarded a five-star safety rating in the 2022 Euro NCAP tests.

Being assisted by one of the most extensive standard safety offerings in its segment, the model scored well in terms of occupant safety and driver-assist systems.

These features help ensure the driver’s safety by detecting and avoiding collisions, remaining in their lane as well as reducing the impact of accidentally running off the road.

In fact, all of Volvo’s models on sale which have been tested today also won the award based on their respective Euro NCAP assessments.

According to Volvo’s cars safety centre head Malin Ekholm, the group aims to be the top in safety.

“That means we adhere to strict safety standards in all of our cars, many of which we helped establish over time.

“No matter which Volvo model you choose, you and your loved ones will drive one of the safest cars on the market,” she said.

The C40 Recharge is one of Volvo’s fully-electric models which was launched in 2021 and the car marque also aims to roll-out more pure electric car models.

It is also the first carmaker to commit to all-out electrification and aims to sell only pure electric cars by 2030 as well as hoping to produce half of its global volume for electric cars by 2050.

Volvo’s new models targets to achieve new safety standards as it aims to become an industry leader in safety.
