In addition, the new Range Assistant app allows you to understand what are the key factors that affect driving range. But it is not; over here because & eacute; functionality which optimizes the autonomy allows you to automatically adjust the air conditioning system cos & igrave; to improve the maximum distance level.

The distribution of the ; update will start shortly and will end; by the end of October. Sanela Ibrovic , Head of Connected Experience at Volvo Cars, commented:

Through in-house software development and over-the-air updates we are constantly improving our cars, ensuring electric Volvo owners that their car always stays up to date.
