Swedish automaker, Volvo Car Corporation, also known as Volvo Personvagnar AB, began operations in 1927, in Gothenburg, Sweden. Ford Motor Company bought the company from the original owners, AB Volvo, in 1999, to add to Ford’s Premier Automotive Group. Subsequently, Ford sold the company to Zhejiang Geely Holding Group in 2010.

Exceptional safety and dependability have long been recognized as the hallmark of Volvo cars. Known never to compromise on its hard earned reputation for safety, Volvo has several innovations to its credit in this direction. The Swedish company introduced laminated glass in 1944. Twelve years later, in 1956, it made padded dashboards a vogue in car design. When central high-mounted stoplights appeared for the first time in 1986, Volvo deserved credit just as it did eight years later in 1984 for introducing side-impact airbags.

Art and design find an aesthetic balance in Volvo’s design landscape. The Swedish brand has successfully created a Scandinavian style of automaking that has survived its later acquisitions by non-Swedish owners. Today, Volvo has an expanded stable of vehicles, including hybrids and SUVs.
