Volvo Car Corporation is a Swedish automobile manufacturer established in 1927. Even though its headquarters is situated in Gothenburg, Sweden, it is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding Group of China (Geely), and is a completely separate company from Volvo Trucks.
Today Volvo Cars manufactures sport utility vehicles (SUVs), station wagons, compact executive sedans, sedans and coupes.
Originally Volvo was part of the ball bearing maker SKF. The trademark Volvo (Latin for “I roll”) was first registered on 11 May 1915, to be used for a series of ball bearings for the US market but that never materialised.
On 14 April 1927, the very first Volvo car (Volvo ÖV 4) left the assembly line. From then on Volvo produced closed top and cabriolet vehicles, with each model specifically designed to perform in the Swedish terrain and climate.
For their logo, they simply made a copy of the ÖV4’s radiator. And in 1935 when Volvo AB was first introduced on the Swedish stock exchange, SKF sold the majority of their shares in the company.
Presented in 1944, the Volvo PV444 passenger car first entered production in 1947. It was their smallest model yet, which would head up their efforts to stake a claim in the profitable US market. The first Volvos arrived via a US wholesaler in the United States in 1955, but in 1956 Volvo began importing cars to the US themselves – their main outlet ever since.
In 1963, Volvo opened their first assembly plant outside of Sweden - the Volvo Halifax Assembly in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. In 1964, Volvo opened its Torslanda plant in Sweden, currently one of its largest production sites (and chiefly produces large cars and SUVs). In 1965 they opened a plant in Belgium, their second largest production site. This was also their first location that produced vehicles within the European Economic Community.
There were several attempts over the years to merge with other manufacturers to ensure survival of the brand. Volvo almost merged with Saab in the late 70s, while in 1978 the Norwegian state almost took over 40 percent of the company. In 1993 a Swedish stockholders' association scuppered a deal to merge with Renault.
Volvo Group decided to sell its automobile manufacturing business in 1999, and fully concentrate on commercial vehicles. Ford was looking to acquire a profitable mid-size European automobile manufacturer, well renowned for its safety aspects. At a price of US$6.45 billion, the sale was completed in 2000.
Along with Jaguar, Land Rover and Aston Martin, Volvo Car Corporation was part of Ford Motor Company's Premier Automotive Group (PAG). In this period, the company significantly grew its range of vehicles.
In 2008, despite financial losses and economic downturns Ford decided to keep Volvo Cars but had plans to restructure the company. Their new strategy included pushing Volvo further upmarket alongside cars like Mercedes-Benz and BMW sedans, wagons, and SUV crossovers. From this decision came the luxurious second generation Volvo S80 and the Volvo XC60.
Despite these changes, Ford announced in December 2008 that it was considering selling Volvo Cars. Rumoured candidates to purchase Volvo Cars included BMW and Volkswagen, but was eventually sold to Chinese company Geely Holding Group. This was the largest overseas acquisition by a Chinese automaker.
Volvo cars have long been marketed and stressed their historic reputation for solidity, safety and reliability. Volvo has always been at the forefront of safety engineering. Their safety milestones include:
• 1944 – The PV was their first model to feature laminated glass.
• 1991 - The first three-point seat belt for the middle of the rear seat in the 960, and a child safety cushion integrated in the middle armrest.
• 1991 – The introduction of their Side Impact Protection System (SIPS) for their 700, 940/960 and 850 models.
• 1994 - Volvo first introduced side airbags, and since 1995 they were installed as standard equipment in all their models.
• 1998 – Standard in all models, Volvo installed a head-protecting airbag.
• 2004 - Volvo introduced the Blind Spot Information System (BLIS), which detected vehicles entering the car’s blind spot and alerted the driver with a light.
