Where are Volvo cars from, and what's in a name? It's easy to see how some vehicles are named after their founders, ultimate purpose, or point of origin. But what about Volvo Cars? The word Volvo is the 1st-person conjugation of the Latin verb "to roll" (volvere). Recorded in 1911 as a trademark for the Swedish ball-bearing manufacturer SKF, the value of the name association is fairly obvious. After all, who would want a ball-bearing that didn't roll? The company evolved, and in 1927, the Volvo OV4 (Oppen-Vagn 4) was the first passenger car to roll off the budding assembly line of the newly formed Volvo Cars. With a determined 28-horsepower four-cylinder engine, the OV4 was known for its passenger room, comfort, and style - benchmarks of today's Volvo cars, SUVs, and wagons.

Fast-forward nearly 100 years and innumerable awards later, Volvo Cars has captured the inspirations of motorists looking for transportation that is distinctive, safe, and luxurious. As a multinational company, Volvo Cars has facilities worldwide, but Volvo Cars' origin remains where the headquarters are located in Gothenburg, Sweden. We know you still have other questions surrounding the marque, so in no particular order:
