On the road to success in China with healthy air for the ride!
I’m happy to announce that the Chinese automotive market has become the first market in the world to experience CabinAir’s new, fully integrated, active air-purification system for cars. Our new solution removes more than 95% of PM2.5 and harmful ultrafine particles on a single pass, keeping the in-cabin air within WHO recommended levels throughout the ride.
It was a team effort all the way from design sketches to final assembly to create a first-in-the-world product like this – especially in an industry with some of the most demanding standards in the world. There were challenges along the way, but everyone came through to deliver on time. Many thanks to all for putting us on the road to success.
I believe this is the kind of product that makes a positive difference in the world. We could be contributing to fewer traffic accidents by helping keep drivers more alert. Traditional systems need to recirculate the air in the car in order to reach acceptable low levels of particulates. As air is recirculated, though, oxygen levels in the car decrease and CO2 levels increase, which can cause the driver to become drowsy and react more slowly. Our system, however, does not depend on recirculating air to purify it.
I think we can really change how people think about air quality in vehicles and its potential effect on driving safety. It’s something all of us can take a great deal of pride in.
The CabinAir Active Air Quality Solution will first be available in China on following Volvo models: S60, V60, V60CC, XC60, S90, S90L, V90, V90CC, XC90 and Polestar1.
