The all-safe, most technologically advanced Volvo | Esquire Motors
We’ve definitely come a long way; from the Benz Patent-Motorwagen in 1886- marking the beginning of modern automobiles- to days in which cars cruise autonomously on electric chargers.
127 years later, cars are rolling in different opulent colours, multiple engine sizes and installed with ridiculously advanced technology systems.
Volvo continues its mission of creating “solutions to global challenges” and becoming “the most desired and successful transport solution provider in the world”. A unique initiative comes with this all-new model in the form of monthly subscriptions.
For years, we’ve been used to subscribing to newspapers, magazines, TV channels; but now Volvo will make you a member using your own car.
The new “Care by Volvo” model of ownership comes with the option of a yearly upgrade. For a relatively cheap monthly lease payment gets you the car, maintenance, insurance, and the chance to get another new Volvo 12 months from now. Basically, an annual upgrade on your car.
Reaching showrooms next year, the small SUV will be powered by 200 and 250 hp four-cylinder motors as it comes with a contrasting roof / body color scheme that the company says will be available in 17 different combinations.
For the first instalment, it will have a 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline four-cylinder engine under the hood, with 250 horsepower. Later instalments will cut off the emissions by making the car completely electrical. While you charge your phone wirelessly, you'll be able to charge your car.
The Milan event in which the car was showcased saw Volvo reveal a 9-inch touchscreen behind the steering wheel which allows you to control most of the audio, air, and vehicle settings.
Perhaps the most attracting feature is the Volvo ‘On Call’ app, which lets you add trusted friends or family to use the car; also lets you unlock and start the car, control the air conditioning or heating, and set the vehicle destination.
For years, Volvo’s mission to create a safe driving experience has seen success and to take it up a notch, they have introduced a semi-autonomous driving assistance pilot that includes automatic emergency braking and pedestrian and cyclist detection. A 360-degree parking camera will make your frustrating parking experience, a splendid and easy one.
