Two years ago, Volvo announced that their cars would be limited to 180 km/h. In 2020, the Swedish car manufacturer implemented this new rule.

Now, it seems like Renault and Dacia will follow Volvo’s decision.

According to a recent announcement made by Luca de Meo, Renault Group’s CEO, in the near future, the Renault and Dacia cars will be factory limited to 180 km/h.

According to de Meo, high speed is the main reason for road deaths. Also, the French group will come with a system called Safety Coach.

This will monitor the road speed limits and road conditions and will adjust the speed accordingly.
