Looking back helps us look forward
The story of Volvo Cars
We started making cars in 1927 because we believed nobody else was making them strong enough or safe enough for Swedish roads. Along the way we’ve come up with dozens of innovations, some of which have changed the world. And it’s this commitment that drives us forward to the next great Volvo Cars idea.
A tribute to Roger Moore
"I designed the Volvo P1800, Roger Moore made it famous."
The quote comes from designer Pelle Petterson who, as a 25-year old intern at Carozzeria Frua in Italy, designed the iconic Volvo P1800 ub 1957.
He refers to the 60's television series "The Saint" in which Roger Moore played the lead character, the infamous Simon Templar, and drove a white P1800 in all the 118 episodes from 1962 until 1969.
In this film Pelle Petterson pays tribute to Sir Roger Moore who passed away one year ago, 23 May 2017. For the first time he drives the 1967 1800 S that Sir Roger was the registered owner of and was featured in the series with the famous "ST I" plates.
The new V90 – 60 years of estate heritage

From past to present
An Unforgettable Adventure
Following the road ahead is often the easiest route to take, but it rarely leads to exciting discoveries. This is our philosophy when we design our cars and the thinking behind Factory Delivery Experience. Factory Delivery Experience gives you the unique opportunity to collect your new Volvo from our factory in Gothenburg, Sweden. But that’s not all you’ll find waiting for you when you arrive in the home of Volvo Cars
Learning the secret language of scent
Sometimes, all you have to do to travel somewhere new is close your eyes and surrender to your sense of smell. To find out how different aromas can help lift ourselves out of the everyday we talked to Swedish perfume brand, Agonist.
Luxury for little travellers
The new generation of Volvo Cars child seats was born in conjunction with the release of the all-new Volvo XC90. When it came to choosing the seats that make up the new range, it was decided that as well as providing the usual, reassuringly high levels of safety Volvo Cars is known for, additional focus would be placed on providing children with extra comfort. The new child seats would also feature a luxurious new look that would feel like a natural part of the car’s interior.
