Volvo Releases Car Accident Advisor System
May 15, 2019—Volvo on Tuesday unveiled its Car Accident Advisor system. In addition to getting owners in contact with emergency services , the automaker will also supply a checklist and guided documentation to make sure drivers don't forget any of the important post-crash steps, like taking pictures of the accident scene, reported CNET.
The web-based service will let them contact their insurance agent digitally and look for nearby repair shops. The hope is that, in addition to making sure all the T's are crossed, this system will speed up the claims process and get owners back on the road sooner.
Vehicles starting with the 2015.5 model year will be able to access the system through the in-car SOS button, but older cars can take advantage of it by calling Volvo Car Customer Care.
