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 producing a premium range of cars that includes sedans, wagons, sportswagons, cross country cars and SUVs.
At Volvo, everything we do starts with people. So our mission to make people’s lives easier, safer and better is something that comes naturally to us. It’s the Volvo way.
Today, we’re still as focused as ever on our three core values: safety, quality and care for the environment. Protecting what’s important. We have always been about safety, but we also understand the environmental impact that cars have – that’s why we developed our more efficient, less polluting Drive-E powertrains and Hybrid engines. This is our future.
