"I was happy and at the same time surprised when I was notified by the NHTSA that I would be receiving the award. It was a wonderful surprise," says Jan Ivarsson, who today is responsible for strategy and requirement specifications at the car safety department.

He quickly goes on to emphasise how important it is for Volvo Cars to reinforce its leading position in car safety.

"Just a few years ago, we felt that the competition was beginning to catch up with us in the sphere of safety. Many of our competitors have been investing immense resources in new technology and they were closing in with a number of fresh innovations in the area of active safety. However, over the past few years we have demonstrated the sheer extent of the expertise in our company. Our new passive and active safety systems which are now being rolled out to customers are of absolute world class," says Jan Ivarsson.

Volvo is a small car brand in the USA. However, the Americans have immense respect for Volvo's and Sweden's long tradition of car safety - which on many occasions has played a vital role in determining US traffic-safety legislation. Over the years, about ten Volvo employees have received the award since it was first announced.

"This is valuable verification that Volvo is appreciated and that we set the tone. We are leading and will continue to lead the way in car safety," says Jan Ivarsson
