Volvo cars will receive an improved air purification system in the cabin

The Swedish automaker has introduced the Advanced Air Cleaner complex, which is responsible for the purity of the air in the car. Since spring, it can be found on Volvo cars of the 60th and 90th series.

New technology helps fight fine particles PM 2.5 – it can capture up to 95 percent!

At the same time, the Swedish development not only measures the concentration of such particles inside the car, but draws up a special schedule. It shows how this indicator is changing here and now. In this case, all information about the air quality in the cabin is transmitted to the central screen.

A special filter made of synthetic fibers and an ionizer are responsible for removing everything unnecessary. It is their friendly tandem that guarantees almost 100 percent protection (recall, while the system shows 95 percent effectiveness). If desired, the car owner can activate the cleaning system himself before the trip. To do this, you will need to use the proprietary Volvo On Call application.

As a reminder, PM 2.5 contains not only biological pollutants, but also the smallest particles of asphalt, soot, automobile rubber, etc.

An increase in the concentration of PM 2.5, as warned by WHO experts, may trigger problems with the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. And also provoke the occurrence of malignant tumors.

Previously, the new Rolls-Royce Ghost received an innovative system for cleaning the air in the cabin. This is a proprietary development of the British automaker called the Micro Environment Purification System (MEPS). The new system works automatically, and its main link is a special filter.
