I get emails from random people from time to time about the many conspiracies that are run in the automotive and business worlds. Some of the accusations are just plain ridiculous: there is a car that can run on pure water that Detroit has been sabotaging (Japan and Germany are in on it as well, people), hydrogen fuel is being sabotaged by Elon Musk (OPEC is helping him out), and that I'm part of a plan to spread libel about Tesla (I secretly hate all electricity).
When most people think about car safety, Volvo inevitably comes to mind. Why not? The Swedish automaker has pushed for increasingly safer vehicles over the years, creating the three-point safety belt and other technologies that have saved numerous lives. Even though recently some people have accused Volvo of slipping when it comes to how safe its vehicles are in relation to the competition, the company has gone out and flexed it safety muscles once more with the all-new 2016 XC90 crossover.
