Truly global, proudly scandinavian
Our core strength comes from our people.
The first Volvo rolled off the production line in Gothenburg way back in 1927 and since then, we’ve gone from strength to strength, creating world-changing innovations along the way.
We’re also a global brand with manufacturing in Sweden, Belgium and China – with new plans to open in the United States and India soon.
Volvo Car Group produces a premium range of cars: sedans, cross country, estates, and luxury SUVs.
Volvo Car Group (Volvo Cars) is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding (Geely Holding) of China.
