Volvo is currently conducting extremely wide-ranging and thorough analysis of a variety of safety scenarios for cars with electric power. Through advanced automatic monitoring of battery status and by encapsulating the battery and protecting it effectively in a collision, the result is a comprehensive safety package. Everything from the way the cars are produced, used and serviced to the way they are recycled is analyzed thoroughly and the information obtained is used to shape the development of the final production car. All Volvo's existing safety systems will also be available in the company's electric cars.
