On June 12, Volvo Cars and Uber presented a jointly developed Volvo XC90 SUV production car capable of driving by itself utilizing Uber’s self-driving system.
The XC90 base vehicle is equipped with key safety features that allow Uber to easily install its own self-driving system, enabling future deployment of the cars in Uber’s network as an autonomous ridesharing service.
The Volvo Cars’ autonomous drive-ready production vehicle includes several back-up systems for both steering and braking functions as well as battery back-up power, and is part a 2016 commercial agreement with Uber for the delivery of tens of thousands of autonomous drive-ready base cars in coming years.
Volvo Cars plans to use a similar autonomous base vehicle concept for the introduction of its own future autonomous drive cars in the early 2020s.
These technologies, to be introduced on the next generation of Volvo models based on the SPA2 vehicle architecture, will include features designed to enable unsupervised autonomous drive in clearly designated areas such as highways and ring roads.

On June 5, Polestar informed that initial Polestar 1 customers have started the process of confirming their final specification as the Electric Performance Hybrid takes the final steps towards production.
New Polestar Production Centre in Chengdu, China, is currently producing tooling try-out cars (TT) which are the final prototype vehicles before pre-production and customer production cars are built.
The TT prototype series, which includes around 50 cars thus far, is used to fine-tune production methods and for evaluation of tooling implementation, ensuring that the manufacturing and assembly processes work as intended, before customer car production begins.
The Polestar Production Centre in Chengdu is in its final stages of completion and is due to be inaugurated later in 2019.

On June 3, Volvo Cars informed that it is joining forces with other car makers, service providers and national governments in a groundbreaking, pan-European pilot project to share traffic safety data generated by cars and infrastructure, in the interest of safer roads for all.
The pilot project, run under the umbrella of a public-private partnership called the European Data Task Force, brings together some of Europe’s leading vehicle makers, service providers as well as a number of EU member states.
The partners will share anonymised safety data or safety services based on that data with the pilot via a cloud-based platform. Volvo Cars will contribute to the pilot project by providing real-time data from its industry-first connected safety technologies, Hazard Light Alert and Slippery Road Alert.
Volvo Cars’ own alert systems allow Volvo cars to communicate with each other and warn drivers of nearby slippery road conditions and hazards via a cloud-based network. Both features were first introduced in 2016 and are available on all new Volvo models across Europe.
