Volvo Cars has announced a range of updates to its Sensus in-car user interface, starting with the new XC60 and the company’s existing and new 90 Series cars. The company has performed a graphical refinement of the Sensus user interface in the new XC60 and in its 90 Series cars, improving its usability and design.
Volvo On Call, the company’s connected smartphone app has also undergone a total redesign. It will be available in around 50 countries by the end of 2017, covering more than 90 per cent of Volvo Cars’ global sales. Volvo car owners can now send navigation destinations based on their calendar directly to their car, find nearby fuel stations and even get help finding their parked cars or on unfamiliar city streets using the remote smartphone app.
The new Volvo On Call updates will apply to all new models across the brand and to Volvo On Call enabled cars back to 2012. The Sensus user interface design in the new XC60 will come pre-installed in new 90 Series cars. Existing 90 Series cars will be updated at the next service.
Additionally, Volvo Cars’ innovative In-car Delivery service, a part of the Volvo On Call smartphone app, which launched in 2015 and allows one-time digital access for deliveries to your car, is set to expand to five additional countries during 2017.
