Volvo became an unlikely tech superpower when no one was watching
When you think of high-tech cars, you probably think of Tesla or BMW.
But there's another automaker that is quietly becoming one of the industry's most tech-centric brands: Volvo.
For years, the Swedish car company has been at the forefront of introducing the latest safety tech into its vehicles.
But the car company's tech savviness extends beyond just its safety systems. Volvo is also investing in technology and partnerships that will make its cars more convenient, efficient, and autonomous.
The company's latest move includes its pledge that all new Volvo cars will either be fully electric or hybrid by 2019.
Here's a closer look at how Volvo is quietly becoming one of the leading car companies in auto tech.
