About Volvo

As iconic a Swedish brand as Abba and Ikea, Volvo were one of the first companies to enter the new technology of the internal combustion engine back at the start of the 20th century.  A brand known for its innovation particularly in the field of safety, Volvo brought the concept of permanent headlighting to the UK and were the first car company to use laminated windscreens, padded dashboards, airbags, and seat belts, long before the latter became a legal requirement.

Founded in Gothenburg in Sweden, Volvo still operates out of some of the original buildings which were constructed at the company’s inception.  Like many car companies, Volvo did not start by manufacturing vehicles; they initially produced ball bearings.  The first Volvo car came off the production line in 1927 and Volvo started trading on the Stockholm Stock Exchange as early as 1935 – Volvo cars have been in continuous production ever since.  The first assembly plant outside Sweden was opened in Halifax in West Yorkshire in 1963.

Rather confusingly, Volvo Cars are different and distinct from Volvo Group which is, if you like, the parent company that also produces buses, heavy goods vehicles plus equipment for construction sites, agriculture, and the marine industry.  In 1999, Volvo Cars were sold to the Ford Motor Corporation, the name remained but the build became American.  In 2010, Ford decided to sell Volvo Cars to the Chinese company, Geeley.  As the Volvo Group retained the rights to the name, Volvo Cars, they still do have some say in what happens and more influence than when the brand was owned by Ford. 

Volvo cars are now produced in China and still retain a reputation for safety, reliability, and performance.  Volvo has an entire division that focuses solely on protecting the brand’s uniqueness of design.  As you might expect, Volvo is leading the way on new automotive power and from 2019, all of their range has been either hybrid or fully electric.  Volvo’s technology like many other of their innovations is likely to become an industry-standard in the years to come for other car manufacturers to follow.
