Who are Volvo?
Volvo have come a long way since 1927, when their first car, the ‘Jakob’ was built in Gothenburg, Sweden. Today, Volvo are owned by Chinese car maker Zhejiang Geely who bought the company from Ford in 2010.
Designing the first three-point seat belts back in 1959, Volvo have always been at the forefront of safety innovation. In more recent times they’ve introduced intelligent safety features such as ‘birds eye view’ parking cameras and lane keeping aids, as well as a probe to help cut emissions in petrol cars by 90%.
