2 Volvo Employees Honored by NHTSA

Safety has always been a strong suite in all Volvo models - from the V50 wagon to the S40 sedan. They have made it their mission to incorporate leading-edge technologies to keep passengers safe at all times. There is proof of this not only in the numerous safety awards from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but also in the ample praise from consumers, such as yourself.

The Scandinavian automaker has, in part, Thomas Broberg and Erik Coelingh, to thank for the unparalleled safety of Volvo cars, coupes, wagons, and crossovers. Each has made significant contributions to automotive safety, over the years...Even the NHTSA has taken notice, recognizing Broberg for his excellent leadership and contributions to automotive safety with the "Special Award of Appreciation" and Coelingh with the " 2011 U.S. Government Award for Safety Engineering and Excellence".

In receiving his award from the NHTSA, Broberg graciously said, "It is naturally an honor to be recognized by such a well-known organization in the field of safety...The award is not only recognition of the work I do and have done, it is also recognition of the achievements of all those who work with car safety at Volvo Car Corporation. This means not just development and implementation of innovative safety solutions but also the efforts involved in spreading knowhow about our safety work."1
