The fully electric Volvo XC40 Recharge has earned a TOP SAFETY PICK PLUS (TSP+) from the American Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The addition of this vehicle means Volvo Cars is the only brand to achieve TSP+ across its entire product range.
The Volvo XC40 Recharge is the first fully electric small SUV to earn the award and adds to the record set last month for the single year TSP+ awards earned by any car maker since TSP+ honours began 2013.
Volvo Cars‘ focus on safety systems as standard, including forwarding collision warning and automatic emergency braking, combined with advanced pedestrian and cyclist collision prevention, sets the company apart.
“Regardless of body style, engine or trim, every Volvo offers innovative protection in a crash,” said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO of Volvo Car USA. “We are proud that IIHS has recognized this by awarding a Top Safety Pick Plus to every vehicle we produce today. No other company has been awarded this honour across all carlines.”
