Volvo to limit new cars to 180km/h from 2020

Volvo Cars will electronically limit its new vehicles to a top speed of 180km/h from 2020 onwards, as it pushes to make its vehicles safer. The company has a long-held goal of eliminating deaths and serious injuries in its new cars, but now recognises advances in technology and design aren't enough to achieve this target. According to Volvo, above a certain speed in-car safety technology and modern infrastructure design aren't enough to prevent death or serious injury.

A prototype believed to be the BMW i4 electric vehicle has been spotted tearing up the white stuff in Europe, ahead of an anticipated market launch next decade. While it was originally thought the new model would draw heavily from the futuristic-designed i Vision Dynamics concept that previewed it, the i4's design looks like it will be quite conventional – so much so you could mistake it for a 4 Series.
