Luminar Technologies, a leading global automotive company, has achieved a significant milestone in its mission to enable the world’s safest and smartest vehicles. The company has successfully passed its first major Run at Rate production test for Volvo Cars at its highly automated manufacturing facility in Monterrey, Mexico. This accomplishment paves the way for the launch of the Volvo EX90, which will feature Luminar’s LiDAR technology as a standard feature on every vehicle.

The Run at Rate test evaluated Luminar’s ability to manufacture its LiDAR sensors on its highly automated production line in Mexico, ensuring that the company can meet the increasing demands of higher production rates, as well as quality, reliability, and performance requirements. By passing this test for Volvo Cars, Luminar has demonstrated its ability to achieve scale and its commitment to the highest standards of automotive safety.

Javier Varela, Volvo Cars’ Chief Operating Officer and Deputy CEO, also emphasized the importance of Luminar’s technology in taking Volvo safety to the next level. He commended Luminar for passing the Run at Rate milestone, which brings the company closer to delivering its technology to customers worldwide.
