Volvo has initiated the recall of 700,000 vehicles worldwide due to problems with the automatic emergency braking system.
The recall covers models S60, V60, V60 Cross Country, S90L, V90, V90 Cross Country, XC40, XC60 and XC90 manufactured in 2019 and 2020 respectively.
According to documents from the Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the United States, it may not always be possible to activate the automatic braking system, which can increase the risk of collisions and injuries.
“No injuries or accidents so far. This is a proactive measure that we take for caution“Said Volvo spokesman Jim Nichols.
He said in the US the measure will cover more than 100,000 vehicles. Volvo announced this to the NHTSA in the US on March 12, and began notifying dealers earlier this week.
Owners will start receiving notifications from May 1, the documents said.
