Volvo receives NHTSA recognition

Volvo Cars has once again been recognised for its contribution to improving traffic safety and reducing fatalities and serious injuries by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the US.

Per Lenhoff, senior manager, and Magdalena Lindman, technical expert in traffic safety data analysis, who work at the Volvo Cars Safety Centre, were recognised by NHTSA for their contribution to enhanced traffic safety. Over the years they have worked on developing a range of systems including run-off road occupant protection and both physical and CAE (computer aided engineering) test methods that capture and replicate real-life crashes.

Both Magdalena and Per have contributed substantially to the high safety performance levels of Volvo Cars’ latest products including the new XC60.

‘We are very pleased that Magdalena and Per have received this recognition from NHTSA for their outstanding work. Volvo Cars foundation is built upon protecting people, understanding their needs and making their lives better,’ said Malin Ekholm, vice president, Volvo Cars Safety Centre.

Lindman and Lenhoff join an exclusive club of Volvo safety engineers that have received this award over the years for their work on ground-breaking safety innovations.
