Volvo On Call – the first SOS system with pan-European coverage
Volvo Cars will launch a pan-European SOS system as early as spring 2006. All new Volvo cars can by then, as an option, be equipped with Volvo On Call, which makes it possible to contact an emergency service centre and state the car’s precise position in the event of an accident. It is a more comprehensive system than eCall, which is proposed by the EU for introduction in 2009-2010. Volvo On Call will be sold in seven European countries from spring 2006, although the service will be supported in fourteen countries.
