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.
Volvo Car Group produces a premium range of cars that includes sedans, wagons, sportswagons, cross country cars and SUVs.
Volvo Car Group (Volvo Cars) is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding (Geely Holding) of China.
The Volvo name can trace its origins as far back as 1915, at ball bearing manufacturer SKF. In 1927 the Volvo Group was formed to make vehicles in Gothenburg.
Since 1999 Volvo Car Corporation has no longer been part of the Volvo Group, but Volvo Cars and the Volvo Group still share the same brand name. A new jointly owned company, Volvo Trademark Holding AB, was established in 1999 to deal with brand matters for both companies.
Volvo Cars is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding of China. The Volvo Group is a publicly-held company headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, with shares listed on OMX Nordic Exchange in Stockholm.
Volvo Cars and the Volvo Group remain separate entities but cooperate in research and development, and brand-related investments such as Volvo Ocean Race.
