The Swedish concern Volvo has suspended access to its online services for Russian users, including the VIDA dealer app and partially the Volvo On Call mobile service

This is reported by the Russian website iXBT.com.

Dealers say they will not be able to perform some work, such as encoding new keys.

The Volvo On Call mobile app and service have not yet been completely discontinued, but owners have noticed that the latest version of the app is not working. There have also been malfunctions on some smartphone models and in the operation of certain functions.

The problems are reportedly affecting new-generation Volvo cars, and nothing will actually change for models that do not require an internet connection and remote databases.

Previously, similar decisions were made by Mercedes-Benz, Audi, BMW, and Jaguar Land Rover.

  • On 28 February 2022, Swedish manufacturer Volvo announced that it was shutting down all its production and sales in Russia due to Moscow's attack on Ukraine.
  • In June of this year, the Swedish Ministry of Defence and the city of Gothenburg considered boycotting the Swedish automaker Volvo, which is owned by a Chinese corporation operating in Russia.
