Volvo Car Corporation previews prototype Multi-Fuel vehicle and new generation Collision Warning system at the Michelin Challenge Bibendum 2006, which takes place in Paris, June 8-12. These two groundbreaking works in progress reflect the company’s preventive development, supplemented by its cleaner diesel engines as well as engines for renewable fuels.

Volvo Car Corporation focuses on developing preventive safety systems to help the driver predict critical traffic situations. The first generation Collision Warning with Brake Support was recently launched in the new Volvo S80. Volvo Car Corporation is now working on a whole new generation of the system, which is designed to be activated at a very early stage.

If the driver does not hit the brakes in time, the system brakes automatically to slow the vehicle down, says Ingrid Skogsmo, Safety Director at Volvo Car Corporation. This helps prevent collisions from happening or reduces their effects.

Volvo Car Corporation has chosen to preview the new generation Collision Warning at the Michelin Challenge Bibendum 2006 in Paris, as a sample of the company’s advanced system development.
