About Volvo Cars
This is Volvo
The first mass-produced Volvo car rolled off the production line in Gothenburg in 1927. Since then, Volvo Car Group has delivered a steady stream of Volvo models equipped with world-leading innovations. Today, Volvo is one of the most well-known and respected car brands in the world with sales in about 100 countries.
Volvo Car Group (Volvo Cars) has been under the ownership of the Zhejiang Geely Holding (Geely Holding) of China since 2010. Volvo Cars formed part of the Swedish Volvo Group until 1999, when the company was bought by Ford Motor Company. In 2010, Volvo Cars was acquired by Geely Holding.
The ‘Volvo’ name is owned by Volvo Trademark Holding AB, which is jointly owned by Volvo Cars and Volvo Group.
The company’s corporate and brand strategy “Designed Around You” puts people at the centre and is a foundation and a guide for the business, the products and the corporate culture.
Volvo cars are marketed and sold by regional market companies and national sales companies through approximately 2,300 local dealers in about 100 countries. Most of the dealerships are independent companies. As of December 2015, Volvo Cars had almost 29,000 employees around the globe.
Volvo Cars produces premium-segment car models in three versions: Sedans (S60, S90), Versatile estates (V40, V60, V90) and Cross Country vehicles (XC60, XC90).
In 2015, Volvo Cars sold a total of 503,127 cars, the first time ever in the company’s history that it sold more than half a million cars. Relative to the strength of the brand, Volvo Cars is a small producer, with a global market share of 1–2 percent. The largest market, China, represented some 16 per cent of the total sales volume in 2015, followed by Sweden (14%), the US (14%), the UK (9%) and Germany (7%).
