Volvo has announced a new mobile application for iPhones and Android models which offers Volvo owners remote information about their car.
"We design cars around people's needs and lifestyle. Creating an intuitive and ergonomically optimised driver's environment is part of our aim to offer a feeling of relaxed control. It is only logical that you should feel in command of your vehicle, including after you have parked it," says Stefan Jacoby, President and CEO at Volvo Car Corporation.
The mobile application is an evolution of Volvo On Call, which originally focused on direct access to a call centre in an emergency or after an accident.
The system now offers owners of 2012 model year Volvos with Volvo On Call the opportunity to download the new app for free, opening up new connectivity possibilities.
The app offers an easy to use relationship with their car remotely.
"This is much more than a gadget. The mobile application is the first step in our connectivity strategy. We have started to build a bridge to the future - and the mobile app will be extended with a range of possibilities," says Stefan Jacoby.Volvo Mobile App Features
