Earlier this year, Swedish automaker Volvo, in a bid to reduce the chances of fatal car accidents, limited the top speed of all its vehicles to just 112 mph. Now, the Geely-owned brand has gone extra mile to prove the safety of its vehicles.

In a new video shared by the carmaker, not one but ten brand new cars were raised to 100 feet in the air using a crane before sending them crashing to the ground.

The drop test was done to simulate real-life single-car accidents or collisions between a car and truck at high speeds.

Volvo also invited extrication specialists (emergency services) to the location to put their skills to the test. This will help them to better understand how to safely remove injured occupants trapped in a severely damaged vehicle.

“We have been working closely together with the Swedish rescue services for many years. That is because we have the same goal : to have safer roads for all.”

“We hope no one ever needs to experience the most severe accidents, but not all accidents can be avoided.”
