MAHWAH, New Jersey , March 4, 2022 (press release) –

The fully electric Volvo C40 Recharge compact SUV has earned the coveted 2022 TOP SAFETY PICK+ (TSP+) award from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS).

Volvo Cars’ long standing safety heritage now extends to its first electric-only offering, with IIHS awarding TSP+ only to vehicles that provide the highest level of safety. Volvo continues to set the benchmark for safety systems, incorporating automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, pedestrian, and cyclist detection as standard in all vehicles.

The C40 Recharge features all the benefits of an SUV with a sleek, low-profile design and incorporates an intuitive, built-in Google infotainment experience. It is also the first Volvo in company history designed as pure electric only and first to feature a leather-free interior. The C40 Recharge is the latest manifestation of Volvo’s commitment to a zero-emission future, with a goal to be a fully electric car company by 2030.

“As Volvo continues our electrification journey, safety remains at the heart of everything we do,” said Anders Gustafsson, President and CEO of Volvo Car USA, “The C40 Recharge earning a prestigious IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus award reaffirms that no matter how your Volvo is powered, it will always be safe.”

Volvo Cars’ vision that no one should be killed or seriously injured in a new Volvo drives the continued innovation of new safety features, including a speed cap in cars, run-off road protection and redesigned advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

For the 2021 model year, Volvo set a new industry benchmark as the only brand with its entire  line-up achieving IIHS TSP+ honors.
