The energy management improvements through the latest OTA update are claimed to help in maintaining appropriate battery temperatures during both cold and warm days, boosting driving range. Charging time has also improved, claims Volvo. The automaker says that pre-heating of the battery lowers charging time. The Volvo Cars app also comes with frequent updates from the car on the charging percentage during an ongoing session. This latest OTA update comes as the auto company's eighth complete car update.

“By making all Volvo models able to receive over-the-air updates, we make important progress towards our ambition of making our customers’ cars better every day," said Henrik Green, chief product officer at Volvo Cars. He also added that this is a significant milestone as the company is now updating cars of all models in a majority of the markets.
