Volvo has revealed the Care Key, allowing any Volvo buyer to set a speed limit for themselves, their family members or friends.


Volvo Cars today reveals the Care Key, allowing any Volvo buyer to set a speed limit for themselves, their family members or friends. The Care Key will come as standard on all Volvo cars from model year 2021.

The Care Key allows Volvo drivers to set limitations on the car's top speed, before lending their car to other family members or to younger and inexperienced drivers such as teenagers that only just received their drivers' licence. The launch of the Care Key follows the announcement earlier this month that Volvo Cars will limit the top speed on all its cars to 180km/h from 2020, in order to send a strong signal about the dangers of speeding.

The speed limit and the Care Key are both part of that initiative and illustrate how car makers can take active responsibility for striving to achieve zero traffic fatalities by supporting better driver behaviour.
