Volvo Armoured Cars
Protecting people and what’s most important to them has been at the heart of Volvo Cars’ operations since 1927. With the luxury SUV Volvo XC90 Armoured, we make the renowned Volvo comfort and the distinct yet discreet Scandinavian style available for people in need of heightened protection.
The Volvo XC90 Armoured
The awarded SUV Volvo XC90 is the essence of discreet, modern Scandinavian design – also in its armoured version. It provides unrivalled comfort and safety, while offering the highest level of personal protection (VPAM VR8 ballistic and explosive certification). This adds high-level security to the vehicle’s stylish character without compromising its fundamental properties. The Volvo XC90 Armoured is the result of a close collaboration with one of the world’s leading armoured vehicle suppliers, TRASCO Bremen GmbH.
The comfort of protection
During the ride, the passengers can enjoy the reassured feeling of high-level protection without compromising on comfort. They can relax in an elegantly crafted cabin, and it’s easy to get in and out of the vehicle with maintained grace and style. And in the most precarious of situations, the state-of-the-art armouring and supportive safe-guarding features help provide 360° ballistic resistance and comprehensive explosive resistance (VR8 requirements).
The distinct, clean Scandinavian design make the Volvo XC90 Armoured a vehicle that doesn’t attract unnecessary attention. All armouring solutions, such as the heavily reinforced window glass, are elegantly integrated and almost invisible from the outside.
Dynamic SUV performance
The SUV design with raised seating position provides the driver with an excellent overview of what’s going on around the vehicle. If needed, all-wheel drive and a heavy-duty adapted chassis help the driver to take tactical actions with maintained stability and control. Large, heavy-duty wheels and high ground clearance further enhance the ability to escape threatening situations. The Volvo XC90 Armoured features full EU road certification.
The Volvo XC90 and XC60 Armoured
Volvo Cars also develops light-armoured cars. They are primarily designed for security services and police forces in their tactical operations, as well as for private customers who need extra protection. This means that we have a complete offer for high-level personal protection and security. The coming armoured variants of our awarded SUVs XC90 and XC60 feature ballistic resistance according to light armouring requirements. You can enjoy exceptional ballistic protection with maintained comfort, safety and driving characteristics – in a genuine Scandinavian SUV, manufactured and armoured according to Volvo Cars’ highest standards.
Sales and production of these cars are scheduled to begin first half of 2020.
