About Volvo Group

Volvo Car Group formed part of the Swedish Volvo Group until 1999, when the company was bought by Ford Motor Company. In 2010, Volvo Car Group was acquired by the Zhejiang Geely Holding Group of China. Part of the growth strategy is to establish China as the company’s second home market.

The Company’s new corporate and brand strategy "Designed Around You" puts people at the center of all operations in the company. The strategy is a foundation and a guide for the business, the products and the corporate culture.


In 2011, Volvo Car Group sold a total of 449,255 cars, an increase of 20.3 per cent compared to 2010. Relative to the strength of the brand, Volvo Car Group is a small producer, with a global market share of 1–2 percent. The largest market, the US, represented some 15 per cent of the total sales volume in 2011, followed by Sweden (13%), China (10%), Germany (7%) and the UK (7%).


Apart from the main car production plants in Gothenburg, Sweden and Ghent, Belgium, Volvo Car Group has since the 1930s, manufactured engines in Skövde, Sweden, parts in Floby, Sweden since 1957, and body components in Olofström, Sweden since 1969. Volvo Car Group also produces one of its models in a plant in Uddevalla, Sweden, a joint venture together with Italian Pininfarina.


In 2006, Volvo Car Group commenced manufacturing in Chongqing, China, in a company owned jointly by the Chinese company Changan, Ford and Mazda,  Changan Ford Mazda Automobile Group Ltd.


Volvo produces models ranging from SUVs, station wagons (estates), and sedans (saloons), to compact executive sedans and coupes. With approximately 2,300 local dealers from around 100 national sales companies worldwide, the US is Volvo Cars' largest market, followed by Sweden and the United Kingdom.


Volvo is known for its high safety standards. Owners are often proud of achieving high mileage; one well-documented 1966 Volvo P1800 has been driven over 2.8 million miles, a Guinness World Record for most miles driven by a single owner in a non-commercial vehicle. According to some figures, the average age of a Volvo being discarded is 19.8 years, second only to Mercedes.


With a new corporate strategy, combined with Volvo Cars’ ambitious expansion plans, the aim is to sell 800,000 cars by 2020.
