► 2012 Volvo C30 Electric - CRASH TEST

At the Detroit Auto Show 2011 Volvo Cars is spotlighting the important issue of electric car safety in an unusual, but distinctive way. On the company's stand there is a Volvo C30 Electric that has undergone a frontal collision test at 40 mph (64 km/h). "Our tests show it is vital to separate the batteries from the electric car's crumple zones to make it as safe as a conventional car. In Detroit we are the first car maker to show the world what a truly safe electric car looks like after a collision with high-speed impact," says Volvo Cars' President and CEO Stefan Jacoby.

► Dacia Duster - Andros Trophy 2011
The acclaimed Trophée Andros is regarded globally as one of motor racing's most uniquely challenging disciplines. The wintry conditions encountered at a variety of challenging locations can shift extremely quickly, consequently calling for precise and almost instinctive driving skills. This makes the Championship an ideal hunting ground for driver of the Dacia Duster team, former Formula 1 star Alain Prost. As with previous years, Dacia demonstrate the robustness that has been worked into Duster's DNA. What's more, the rules which govern this exciting competition restrict the use of complex, costly technologies. This means that parts such as the chassis, gearbox and tyres must all comply with specific regulations.





► Kia KV7 Concept - Detroit 2011 (slide)
Kia Motors' design-led transformation has delivered eye-catching vehicles such as the Soul, Forte Koup, Sorento and Sportage that bear strong resemblances to the concept cars that preceded them, and today at the 2011 North American International Auto Show the brand's U.S. design studio unveiled its latest design statement -- the "KV7" concept. Conceived as a modern-day "activity van," the KV7 concept challenges the notion that vans are strictly for family transportation and reveals a vision for a vehicle with the functionality to transport a large number of people and their belongings while also serving as a connected social hub for groups of friends and adventure-seekers.





► 2012 Volvo C30 Electric - Winter Tests
The Volvo C30 Electric has been exposed to gruelling winter conditions in order to ensure that the battery-powered car runs smoothly in temperatures as low as -20° Celsius. Volvo Cars' requirements on the C30 Electric are just as stringent as on all other Volvo models and the battery-powered car is exposed to the same test regime. On top of this, several new test methods have been developed for the electric vehicles. All in all, over 200 different tests have been performed. The C30 Electric has a innovative solution that makes it possible to get comfortable heating in cold winter conditions without compromising the battery driving range. Climate control in the passenger compartment takes place via a bio-ethanol powered heater fitted in all cars. The car's ethanol tank can carry 14.5 litres of bio-ethanol. It is also possible to run the climate unit on electricity from the batteries. In electric mode an immersion heater warms up the coolant in the climate unit.





2012 Volvo V60 CRASH TEST
The rating of the Volvo V60 has been upgraded from 2011 to 2012. The car is unchanged and test results have been carried over from the previous year. The 2012 rating reflects the performance of the V60 against Euro NCAP's latest requirements. Based on data reviewed by Euro NCAP, a similar level of safety performance can be expected from the Volvo S60 (2010-) Adult occupant The passenger compartment remained stable in the frontal impact, the windscreen pillar being deformed rearward only 1mm after the test. Dummy readings indicated good protection of the knees and femurs of the driver and passenger. Volvo showed that a similar level of protection would be provided for occupants of different sizes and to those sat in different positions. In the side barrier test, the V60 scored maximum points, all body regions being well protected. In the more severe side pole impact, dummy readings of rib compression indicated marginal protection of the chest. The seat and its fixed-position head restraint provided good protection against whiplash injuries in a rear- end collision. Child occupant Both child dummies were seated rearward-facing in the frontal and side impact tests. The V60 gained maximum points for its protection of the dummies in the dynamic tests. The passenger airbag can be disabled to allow a rearward facing child restraint to be used in that seating position. However, information provided to the driver regarding the status of the airbag is not sufficiently clear. A non-permanent pictogram-only label gives insufficient warning of the dangers of using a rearward facing restraint in this seating position without first disabling the airbag. Pedestrian The bumper provided good protection in some of the areas tested and marginal in others. In most areas likely to be struck by a child, the bonnet provided good protection against head injuries. In those areas likely to be struck by an adult's head, protection was predominantly poor but good in several of the areas tested. ► SUBSCRIBE NOW: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=youcarpress ► FACEBOOK: http://www.facebook.com/youcarpress ► TWITTER: http://www.twitter.com/youcartv ► GOOGLE+: http://plus.google.com/+YouCarPress

Volvo Crash Test Center.mpg
Volvos crash-test laboratory now 10 years new [img]http://www.cleanmpg.com/photos/data/2/AmericanFlag.jpg[/img] [url=cleanmpg.com]We are continuously taking new steps towards our vision that nobody should die or suffer serious injuries in a new Volvo car by the year 2020.[/url] [fimg=left][/fimg]Wayne Gerdes - [url=cleanmpg.com]CleanMPG[/url] - May 8, 2010 At Volvo, the ability to replicate road accidents contributes to world-class crash safety. Volvo's crash-test laboratory in Torslanda turns 10 this year - and the almost 3,000 full-scale tests that have been carried out during the high-tech facility's first decade have helped give Volvo owners some of the safest cars. "We can replicate most of the incident and accident scenarios that take place out on the roads. By analyzing these and then testing new safety technology in the crash-test laboratory, we can improve the safety level in our cars so that they become even safer in real-life traffic conditions," says Thomas Broberg, Senior Safety Advisor at Volvo. When the new safety center was inaugurated by Sweden's King Carl XVI Gustaf in early 2000, it was one of the most advanced in the car industry - a position it has retained over the years thanks to the continuous implementation of new equipment and new test methods. The latest technology infusion is in the form of a set of digital high-speed cameras that can take 200,000 frames per second.
