Renault joins Volvo in limiting all cars to 180 km/h
Renault will soon limit its cars to 180 kilometres per hour.
It becomes the world’s second carmaker to do so.
Last year, Volvo announced that it would electronically limit the top speed of all its models to 180km/h, as part of its ambition to ensure that no fatalities occur in future Volvo cars.
About a third of car crashes globally involve excessive speed.

Besides Germany, I don’t see this being an issue anywhere else…Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist
From about 140 km/h, there are no safety systems that work well… An airbag at 150 is not going to make a difference…Ciro De Siena, motoring journalist
