Volvo clears the air with their cutting-edge air purification technology

Volvo Cars' Air Quality

Already at the forefront of electrification, Volvo is taking steps to offer its customers ever-improving air quality inside its latest cars through advanced air purification.

Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) has certified the Advanced Air Cleaner, part of the latest air purification technology available on the new XC60 and XC90 series models, as asthma and allergy-friendly, removing up to 99.9% of grass, tree, and weed pollen allergens from incoming air inside the cabin.

Models equipped with air purification technology measure PM 2.5 levels inside the cabin, allowing customers to compare those to outside levels. From a global perspective, many urban areas suffer from the same PM 2.5 levels that exceed recommended levels by the World Health Organisation.

Drivers can also use the Volvo On Call smartphone app to schedule the cleaning of the cabin air before occupants enter. A special team of odour assessors, internally known as The Noses, tests components individually and on a complete level for odour emissions.

As a precursor, by 2025, 50% of Volvo’s sales volume will be fully electric, and their commitment to putting 1-million electrified cars on the road by the same year. Volvo has already started introducing its range of electrified vehicles, designed from the outset for electrification. The choices will include fully electric cars, plug-in hybrid models, and new mild-hybrid models.
