Visit one of Europe’s most modern car plants
Our factory tour
Take a tour through the Volvo Cars plant at Torslanda and get a behind-the-scenes view of our production line. We welcome 20,000 visitors a year on our factory tours, where we will take you through the production process - from rolls of sheet metal to finished cars.
Factory tours are available to companies, organisations and schools, as well as the general public. Each tour can take up to 30 guests, although arrangements can be made for larger parties. The tours last around one hour, with varying routes depending on maintenance or development work being carried out in the plant. Photography and the use of mobile phones is prohibited.
Tours are available in Swedish, English and Mandarin, Monday to Friday, and must be booked in advance.
Volvo Cars Visitor Centre is located at Karossvägen 2, along Sörredsvägen in Torslanda. When using a GPS, please enter Karossvägen 2 or Customer Avenue.
Several buses, some going from Gothenburg Central Station, will take you here – please look for buses stopping at the “Volvohallen” bus stop and when you arrive, we are just across the street on Sörredsvägen.

Working at Volvo
A breath of Swedish air
Most of us take breathing fresh air for granted. Not Anders Löfvendahl. He’s an air quality expert, and one of the team behind CleanZone – the innovation that keeps the air inside a new Volvo healthy, however bad the air quality outside.
Our window to the world
Throughout history, the human eye has meant different things to different cultures. In ancient Egypt it was worshipped as a powerful symbol of good health and protection, during the Renaissance it represented vision and clarity, whereas the eye that graces today’s American dollar bill is designed to depict guidance and reassurance. But what about for those of us who worship at the altar of the automobile? What do our eyes mean to our enjoyment of our cars and can they really hold the key to a better life on the road?
