What Country Makes Volvo?

While many people realize the Volvo brand comes from Europe, some mistake it as German, Volvo Cars actually began in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company was founded by Assar Gabrielsson and Gustaf Larson in 1927, and the first vehicle ever produced was the ÖV4, nicknamed Jakob. Renowned for their leadership in automotive safety, Volvo Cars was purchased by the Ford Motor Company and remained part of their Premier Automotive brands from 1999 to 2010. The automaker is now owned by Geely Automobile, a major automotive brand in China. Geely Motors' headquarters are in Shanghai; however, Volvo Cars remains headquartered in Torslanda in Gothenburg, Sweden. Volvo Cars has manufacturing plants in Sweden, Belgium, China, and recently opened their first manufacturing facility in the United States, in South Carolina.
