Op. No.: 89208 89204

A hitch especially introduced for the North American market. With the electrically folding towbar, you do not have to stretch beneath the car to detach or remove the towbar. Pressing a button in the luggage compartment folds the towbar out. A simple hand movement positions the towbar in a locked position.

For increased safety there is a light indicator on the button that indicates that the towbar is locked. If the towbar is unlocked, a warning message is shown in the car's instrument cluster.

The trailer module manages the electronic communication between the car and trailer.

With the help of the light control function in the car's display, the lights on the trailer illuminate in a sequence that makes it easier to check the lighting.

If there is a fault or problem with the trailer's direction indicators or brake lights during driving, the trailer module immediately sends the driver information.

The towbar is equipped with Volvo's Trailer Stability Assist technology (TSA) and interacts with your Volvo's DSTC system1. If the trailer starts to sway back and forth at speeds in excess of 30 mph (50 km/h), TSA can brake one or more wheels to regain stability and maintain control.

Each Volvo towbar has been designed for your Volvo. They are an integral part of the car's body and have been tested to ensure that they meet the most stringent safety and function requirements.
