All About Volvo Cars

Volvo Cars is a luxury automotive manufacturer that is based in Sweden. Although the company's headquarters are located in Torslanda, the company is actually a subsidiary of Geely, a Chinese vehicles company. Volvo manufacturers a variety of vehicles, including sedans, station wagons, and sports utility vehicles.

The Beginning Of Volvo

Volvo was founded in 1927. The company's first vehicle, the Volvo ÖV 4, was released in the same year. Many of their early vehicles were specifically designed for driving in Sweden. Volvo started producing cars for the American market in the 1950s, and they continue to sell cars in North America to this day.

Because Volvo began as a small company, they sought to merge with other companies for decades. Many of these mergers were blocked by major actors in Sweden. In the 90s, Volvo chose to sell its manufacturing business and joined the Ford Motor Company.

Volvo's Relationship With Ford

After the United States entered an economic recession in 2007, Volvo became concerned about the future of their company with Ford. Numerous layoffs occurred, and Volvo began to explore becoming an independent company with the assistance of the Swedish government.

Instead of Volvo becoming independent, the company was sold to Geely, an automotive company in China. Geely officially took ownership of Volvo in 2010. The company paid more than $1.3 billion for Volvo, making it the largest-ever overseas acquisition from an auto company in China. Since being purchased by Geely, Volvo has changed its vehicle line-up to better suit the needs of their customers.

Volvo's Plans For The Future

Going forward, Volvo has stated that all of the vehicles that they produce will be either electric or hybrid electric. This decision may have been caused by the fines that Volvo paid for missing fuel economy targets in the past. Volvo has been producing vehicles powered by a combustion engine for decades, and this marks a big change for the company.

Volvo has also announced plans to introduce self-driving cars. The company has announced that they will collaborate with Uber in order to produce these vehicles. Volvo also recently introduced a vehicle subscription service known as Care by Volvo.

In recent years, Volvo sales have been up globally. The company has found great success with Geely, and it seems likely that Volvo's future ventures will wind up being very successful as well. This Swedish automotive company is worth keeping an eye on.
