VOLVO FAQs

Where Volvo is made?

Volvo cars are renowned for their Scandinavian styling, so it’ll come as no surprise that models continue to be manufactured at production plants in the marque’s native Sweden. Of course, the company also operates plants elsewhere around the globe, including Charleston, South Carolina, Belgium, China, India, and Malaysia.

When was Volvo founded?

Volvo was founded as a subsidiary of manufacturing company SKF back in 1927 in Gothenburg, Sweden, even though the trademark for Volvo had been registered some 12 years previously. The very first model from Volvo - the ÖV 4 - was assembled on April 14, 1927.

Who owns Volvo Trucks?

Volvo Trucks - the second largest heavy duty truck brand in the world - is owned and operated by AB Volvo - a Swedish multinational company based in Gothenburg.

Are Volvo cars reliable?

When it comes to the manufacturing of vehicles, Volvo takes pride in developing models that possess the style, safety, and reliability associated with the manufacturer’s history. As such, you can be confident that the vehicle you buy won’t let you down. In fact, to provide added peace of mind, Volvo provides a selection of warranties ranging from three to 12 years for selected components. Furthermore, the Volvo service promise guarantees quality, reassurance and expertise, with such measures as a personal service contact, health check, price promise, and more all included.

Are Volvo trucks reliable?

Like the passenger vehicles from Volvo, the manufacturer’s trucks benefit from a selection of warranties (including extended warranty options) covering parts, servicing, engines, and more. For example, having selected components fitted by authorised Volvo workshops double the standard 12-month unlimited mileage warranty automatically.

Are Volvo parts expensive?

Purchasing components for your Volvo may seem expensive in comparison to lower quality vehicle brands and generic items. That said, the quality of official manufacturer parts and accessories brings a host of benefits. Not only do you have the advantage of investing parts that guarantee compatibility, you also benefit from a manufacturer warranty and the peace of mind that should you require servicing support, authorised Volvo technicians will be able to help.
