Sweden – a creative force
Sweden’s new generation of entrepreneurs and creators discuss how the country’s society and environment make it a uniquely creative and innovative place
At home anywhere
When we began making cars in 1927, it was because we believed no other car manufacturer was making them strong enough or safe enough to cope with the harsh Swedish landscape and climate. Over the years, our climate and landscape haven’t changed that much, but our cars certainly have.
A Volvo is for life
The environment is something all car manufacturers now think about. In 1983, however, it was a different story. So, when we released the LCP 2000, a concept car designed with the good of the planet in mind, it raised a few eyebrows. Now, more than thirty years later, our commitment to the environment is stronger than ever.
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.

More than meets the eye

Discover Denmark by bike
In Denmark, there are more than 12,000 kilometres of sheltered cycle paths that gently wind their way across a rolling landscape and reveal a country of breathtaking beauty. All you need to get you there is a good bicycle holder. The rest is up to you.
The art of comfort
With the release of the all-new XC90, Volvo Cars introduced a thrilling, thoroughly modern take on the concept of Scandinavian luxury. Here was a car where innovative design features effortlessly integrated with natural materials to create a luxurious interior, which was as comfortable as it was eye-catching. Now, with the release of the new Volvo S90, Volvo V90 and Volvo XC90 Excellence, our designers have kept their focus on luxury and wellbeing and used it to turn the concept of in-car comfort into an art form.
Crystal clear thinking

Crafted by Sweden
Every new Volvo is a product of Sweden – a place with a unique society and sense of style. Maximilian Missoni, Vice President Exterior Design, and Tisha Johnson, Senior Interior Designer, talk about how the calm confidence and the focus on natural light and materials in the Volvo S90 and V90 exemplify Swedish life and modern Scandinavian design.
